Witches Brew

Making a witches brew!

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and bling-worms sting,
Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Cool it with a baboon's blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.

Is the recipe above similar to your witches brew recipe?! 

We wish we could claim credit for the cute felt witches hats above, but we found these at the craft store in the Halloween baking section as a garland. They were to cute to pass up and were originally attached to each other by a black ribbon that ran through the inside of the hat and out through the tip to attach to the next hat.

We had other plans in mind for these as you can see.

To use these for our Witches Brew project we simply snipped off the ribbon. These would not be too difficult to make. All one would need is different colored felt and some fabric stiffener or maybe Mod Podge would work. We will have to work on this one and see what we can come up with.

We covered natural sparkling juice cans with Halloween scrap book paper that had similar colors as the witches hats.  Measure. Cut. Tape. We found these great witches brew printable tags over at Catch My Party .

These would be fun and festive for a  Halloween party at home or to bring to school for a class party. The kids can keep the withes hat afterwards and make a craft with it.

Tuck a few away in the fridge for your little goblins to find after school.

Make up a couple "sand-witches" to serve along side the witches brew!

Lets see, this one is eye of  newt and toe of frog.....

And here we have wool of bat and tongue of dog.

Double double toil and trouble, we hope we've inspired you to make some withces brew on the double! Be inspired, get creative!

The words of the Lord are pure words,
Like silver tried in a furnace of earth,
Purified seven times.
Proverbs 12:6

  1. What a fun Halloween post! I love the Shakespesre quote and how you tied it all together. Great job!

  2. Love this! The witches hats are a fantastic addition - great re-use of a garland! Saw you on Someday Crafts and came to say hello : )

  3. Cool brew. My kids would love it. My weekly linky party--One Creative Weekend--has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit "One Creative Weekend" on (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.
