DIY Harry Potter Series – Mini Polyjuice Potion Cauldron for Halloween

A quick DIY to add some Potter charm to this year’s Halloween.


  • Mini cauldrons (available at any store in the seasonal section)
  • Green paint
  • Hot glue, mod podge
  • Polyjuice potion label print out
  • Cotton balls
  • Optional: glow-in-the-dark green paint


  • Dunk the cotton balls in the green paint and let them dry.
  • Layer the cotton inside the cauldron, sticking each layer down with the hot glue. Fill the entire cauldron with the green cotton balls.
  • Using hot glue, add some strands of potion spilling along the sides. Paint the strands green and let dry.
  • Using mod podge, stick the label on to the outside of the cauldron.
  • Optional: Add a thin layer of glow-in-the-dark-paint to the top of the cauldron and a few strands sticking outside and let dry.

Your glowing potion is ready. You can purchase a cauldron garland and repeat the above steps to create more. I made 2 different versions, one with a darker paint and one with a glow-in-the-dark lighter paint. I even love how they have completely different textures.
