Happy Sunday! Today, we’re revisiting a tried and true favorite for our 31 Days of Halloween!
While not new to Sewhooked, Cauldron Pin Cushions are one of my all time favorite super-easy crafty gift to make for Harry Potter & Halloween-loving friends who sew!
- Plastic Cauldron Party Favor (available during Halloween & St. Patrick’s Day at party stores)
- marbles, pony beads or whatever you like to weigh down the bottom (absolutely necessary or the cauldron will be top heavy and roll)
- a small amount of polyfil
- scrap of fabric
- hand sewing needle needle
- hot melt glue gun
Gather your supplies (weights are in the bowl).
Cut a circle about twice the size of the cauldron out of the fabric. With the thread doubled on your needle, stitch a straight running stitch around the outside edge.
Pull the running stitch up about half way to gather the fabric circle. Add polyfil to the fabric circle & pull thread tight. Knot off securely.
Add weights to the bottom of the cauldron and top with polyfil.
Let dry and, we’re done! How fun and easy is that?
