Instructions

Step One

Gather your supplies.  Mini-“candy kettle” cauldrons can be found at your local party store around Halloween or order them online any time of year.  This is a great way to use up fabric scraps.  We especially loved the texture of Cuddle 3 fabric scraps.  Fabrics shown include Solid Cuddle® 3 GoldSolid Cuddle® 3 KiwiEmbossed Chevron Cuddle® OrangeLuxe Cuddle® Lattice Jewel.

Cut your fabric scrap, so that it is about twice as bit as the opening to your cauldron.  I didn’t measure mine or cut them exactly, but they’re about 4 inches square.

 

Step Two

Fill your cauldron about 1/2 full with Poly-Fil® Poly Pellets® Weighted Stuffing Beads.  This will make your cauldron bottom heavy and help it stay upright.

Fill the rest of the way with Poly-Fil® Premium Fiber Fill.

Cauldron Pin Cushion or Paperweight

Tuck your fabric scrap deeply along the sides.
