Today, I looked at it and I thought, "hey, I can make a crystal thingy out of that!"
I grabbed a flickering tealight (about 4 for $1) and I drilled a hole in the cap. I hot glued the thing together. Then I stippled some latex putty on it to give it a little texture. Here's a pic.
I put a little tape on the LED and I spraypainted the whole thing black.
Then I took some clear crystals (you can get them in the floral section at Michaels) and I hot glued them together into a little pile. I used a metallic red paint and gave them a thin wash of color. Then I hot glued them to the top of the "cauldron." I did a drybrush of light green (eucalyptus) on the rough/paste stippling. It looks a bit like vines or other mossy growth.

Here it is with the light turned on. The color of the crystals changes somewhat. They flicker and glow.
|Ok wizard, look what you've done now...|
