Picture of Cauldron Place Card Holders
These little cauldron place card holders are a fun Halloween decoration for spooky dinner parties. They are made from polymer clay and can be customized with different colors or patterns of potion. The cauldrons themselves can be made from a variety of metallic colors to match your theme.

Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies
To make each place card holder, you'll need:
  • Aluminum foil (about 4" off a standard roll)
  • Stiff wire -- I used 10 gauge copper wire but you can use floral stems or other wire
  • Needlenose Pliers
  • Wire Cutters
  • Polymer Clay in the color of your choice to be the "potion" -- about 1/8th of a 2oz block
  • Black Polymer Clay -- about 1/4th of a 2oz block
  • A thin pointy object such as the pointed end of a small craft paint brush or the point of a chopstick
  • A thin, smooth rod, such as a screwdriver, to wrap the wire around when creating your card holding loop
