PaintItBlack says,”Got the Union Products cauldren at a rummage sale for 50 cents, dollar store knee socks $1 and spanish moss $1, yard sale shoes .50, broom $1.50. Used an old pool noodle for legs and some scrap foam inside the cauldren. Also used some dollar store bamboo sticks $1 to stick inside the pool noodles and into the foam in the cauldren. Threw some rocks into the bottom of the cauldren before the foam, to stabilize the whole thing. Total cost was a whopping $5.50, and I am pleased with the result. I will probably display this on the front porch this season.”
