DIY Monster Punch Bowl

DIY Monster Punch BowlFor a monstrous twist this Halloween I made this tentacle ladle, inspired by Cthulhu a tentacle monster from Lovecraft‘s novels, that climbs out of my cauldron punch bowl. It’s creepy and easy to make, and the entire punch bowl only cost $3 to make!

While wondering around the Dollar store I came across this bizarre tentacle finger puppet that was being sold as a toy for children. It was just so odd, and reminded me of the weird recurring tentacle theme I would always see when living in Japan that I just had to buy it.

To make the punch bowl ladle all I did was insert the end of one of my plastic ladles into the hole at the bottom of the puppet.

Ta-da! No, seriously it is that easy.

Placing my new tentacle ladle into my plastic cauldron. I stuck a waterproof LED drink light I picked up from HomeSense a few months prior to give my punch a bright green color. This is entirely optional, but just added to the mysterious nature of the punch bowl.
