Step 1. Gather your supplies.



Step 2.


First you’ll need to make your cauldron, (or the pot that witches often use for mixing potions). Paint a paper cup and (1) Jumbo Craft Stick with black Acrylic Paint.


Step 3.


Use scissors to cut a hole at the bottom of the cup in which you will insert your craft stick. This will be used to create the “pop up” effect in a later step.


Step 4.


To make a hat for your witch, cut a curved shape, as shown. Curl the shape to form a cone and use glue to secure.


Step 5.


Cut a circle from black construction paper. Glue the cone to the small circle base to complete the hat.


Step 6.


Glue the hat onto a large green Pom, as the witch’s head. Glue the head onto the top of the black Craft Stick.


Step 7.


Complete the witch’s face by gluing (2) Wiggly Eyes, a small piece of Fuzzy Stick for the nose, and a small “frown like” piece of paper for the mouth.


Step 8.


Decorate the outside of the cauldron. We also painted the word “Poison” on the cauldron in pink and green Glow in the Dark paint.


Step 9.


Draw a spiderweb with Silver Glitter Glue.


Step 10.


Make a snake using a piece of green Fuzzy Stick and a Wiggly Eye and glue to the side of the cauldron.


Step 11.


Create a handle for the cauldron with a black Fuzzy Stick. Insert the witch into the cup and put the craft stick through the hole made in Step 2. Move the stick up and down to create the pop up effect!
