I got around to making a firepit for my witches cauldron this year. I totally ripped the idea off of a couple of tutorials I found on this site. Props to Riverborder, loach160, and jpbailey1for your tutorials.

This one is for under my cauldron, but I will be making a few more. For this I used a bunch of styrofoam skulls I got from kmart after halloween last year for about $1 each, a couple of battery powered lights from amazon, $8 each, an old bin lid, and good stuff with some black paint.

I cut out the center of the skulls, made eyes and a mouth with a drywall saw And then strung lights through the skulls. Other than that I stuck to the tutorials above and it worked well.

I made another one today and corpsed a skeleton which I set up to look like its trapped in the coals, I like the way it turned out but the pictures and lighting don't do it justice.

Btw...... I found some good lights which I used to light up the guy coming out of the coals. It's basically a small round remote controlled, weatherproofed light that you can set for a couple of different colors. Red went perfect with this prop and lit up the body.
You can get them from Amazon if anyone is interested.

Just finished the cauldron I started a couple of months ago. I will post better pictures tonight with the fire and cauldron lit up, but am excited it's finally done and everything is coming together
