Halloween Centerpiece Witches Brew Pot Tutorial

Here is a step-by-step tutorial for making a witches brew pot Dollar Tree DIY Centerpiece.

Paint Witch Pot Candy Bucket

To make the cheap Halloween decoration centerpiece look more authentic, I began by painting the plastic witch pot.

Paint the exterior with flat chalk paint to make the pot look like a crusty witch pot. The flat chalk paint will adhere to the plastic better than regular craft paint.

Replace Witch Pot Handle

Next, replace the plastic handle with a length of foraged grapevine.

To remove the original handle, you will need to use a knife to increase the hole in the plastic. Insert the sharp knife and twist until the hole has increased in size.

Note: Use caution when using a sharp knife to increase the size of the hole.

You can then insert the ends of the grapevine into the holes. Add a piece of masking tape around the grapevine inside the pot to keep it from slipping out of the hole. You will not see the tape once your centerpiece has been arranged.

You can use a wired vine twine if you don’t have access to a grapevine.

Insider Tip

Painting the witch pot and replacing the handle are both optional steps.
I recommend these optional steps if you want a more authentic witches’ brew centerpiece. However, your centerpiece will still look spooky if you use the pot as it is.

Arrange Dollar Tree Halloween Decorations in Witch Pot

Now, you are ready to assemble the DIY Halloween Centerpiece.

Begin by adding the skeleton tongs and black stems to the pot.

Add polyfil in and around the stems and tongs to hold them in place. Continue to fill the pot with polyfil until the stems feel secure within the pot.

Pull some pieces upward into the stems and downward to resemble the brew overflowing from the pot.

Add Spooky Eyeballs and Spiders To Brew Pot

Next, attach the Dollar Tree Halloween decorations to the brew pot centerpiece using the hot glue gun.

Add eyeballs and spiders to the poly-fil and the stems with a drop of hot glue to each piece. Hold in place until the glue dries.

You can add an eyeball to the palm of the skeleton tong for a fun touch.

Safe Way To Create A Fire Under the Witches Brew Pot

I wanted to create an authentic-looking fire underneath the witches brew pot DIY centerpiece, but several options were expensive or dangerous. So here’s what I did.

I gather several gravels from my driveway and painted them with spray paint.

Spray paint gravel or rocks to use as hot coals.

I painted them black, red, and yellow. You only need a handful of each color.

Once they are dry, stack them underneath the witch pot. I added a circle of black paper under the rocks to keep them in place.
