{Halloween Guest Blogger} Mariah from Giggles Galore

Happy Friday! It's been so much fun having awesome guest bloggers this week and I have one more fabulous person for you! Mariah from Giggles Galore is here today to share a fun Halloween tutorial!

Mariah throws ADORABLE parties and makes so many cute crafts for her family that she shares on her blog. I love the Tattle Monster she made as a fun lesson for her little ones! And now she's here to share another cute project...

Hi, Love & Sugar Kisses fans!  I'm Mariah from Giggles Galore and I am super excited to be here today sharing one of my new Halloween creations!

I saw an invitation in a magazine (can't remember which one) and I loved how they used buttons to create a bubbly cauldron.  I thought the idea was perfect for creating a larger scale design to hang on the wall for Halloween.

Today I'm going to show you how to make your own bubbly cauldron for Halloween for only a few dollars and in less than 30 minutes.

First, you'll need to decide on your color scheme and pick out buttons and scrapbook paper to match.  I went with lime green, yellow and purple.

Next, I used my Cricut to cut out a cauldron shape, but if you don't have a cutter you could find an image online and enlarge it to the size you want and cut and trace on black paper. I cut my scrapbook paper to fit in my 11x14 picture frame and attached the cauldron to the center.

Now, it's time to create your bubbly brew.  I placed the buttons and arranged them how I wanted them.  Then I used adhesive dots to adhere them.  Once I had them placed I pulled cotton balls apart and stuck bits of fluffy cotton in between buttons.

For fun I added a tag that said "Something's brewing..." but you could leave it as is or put a different saying.

All done, I told you it was quick and easy!  Now you've got a fun and festive bubbly cauldron to display for Halloween.


Thank you Mariah for sharing this adorable bubbling cauldron tutorial! I LOVE button crafts and this is such a fun idea!
