If you search google for halloween witch decor and decorations, you will find several that you can purchase at Amazon, Walmart, Grandin Road and even Home Depot.

Halloween Witches Decor with Faux Mist

Note: Faux Cauldron mist can be made from dry ice or you can create a faux mist like I did with white poly fiber. 

Step 2. Once the top was removed, I spray painted the pumpkin white and filled my socks. I also decided to add a bit of the polyfill (you can get polyfill in any craft store) around the top of the pumpkin to create a boiling smokey look. I mean, the witch is cooking right? 😉

Step 3. Add sticker to make a halloween saying. I saw this cute saying at Michaels on a sign and thought it would be perfect for the front of our halloween pumpkin. There are so many fun stickers to choose from, these ended up perfect for a fun halloween look. I added a witch hat to pumpkin from HomeGoods and he was good to go.

Isn’t this the cutest DIY pumpkin witches cauldron for Halloween?
