Cut a cardboard disk to fit in the lip at the top of the cauldron. Punch a 1-inch hole in the disk and thread lights through the hole. Thread a dark-colored outdoor extension cord through the hole in the back of the cauldron. Plug the lights into the extension cord under the disk so that most of the lights are on top of the cardboard and draping over the sides of the cauldron.
