For 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!
DIY Monster Punch Bowl
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.
Complete with my DIY Halloween cups my punch bowl is ready to go.
