Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans are extremely popular at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. They are like regular muggle jelly beans but with a much more creative variety of flavors. Aside from the classic flavors like chocolate, toffee and peppermint there are more gag-worthy options like booger, vomit, spinach and tripe! Hogwarts students give them as holiday gifts and pick them out as a treat on outings into Hogsmeade and on the Hogwarts Express!
One of the classic interactions between Harry and Professor Dumbledore is centered around sharing a pack of Every Flavor Beans while Harry is recovering from an injury in the sick wing.
I can't imagine why anyone would think eating Every Flavor Beans is a wise choice. Can you even imagine eating a booger flavored jelly bean? It gives me the willies! The Every Flavor Beans slogan is, "A risk with every mouthful." The excitement of the gamble must be worth the risk. Especially for little wizards.

Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans Cauldrons - Printable
Start by downloading and printing the Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans printable.You can find the free printable here. I used a thick cardstock paper, which you can find on Amazon here. It helps the signs stay up better!
Cut out each individual card. There are 12 Every Flavor Beans Cauldron signs per printed page.
Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans Cauldrons - Getting Started
Then, cut the white candy sticks in half so they are about 3.5 inches tall. You find find the candy sticks at Walmart in the Wilton isle with the frosting stuff. Or, order them online at Amazon here. They are officially called an all purpose cake pop stick.
Wrap the stick with a section of black and white bakers twine. I think the twine gives the whole project a spooky look. If you don't have twine, it won't destroy the project to skip this step. But, I think it looks better with the added color and texture. Tie a little knot at each end of the twine to keep it in place.
Lay the cake pop stick on the back of the Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans sign. Use some cute sparkle Washi tape to secure it in place. Again, the sparkle tape just makes it look more festive!

Next, pour the Jelly Belly candies into the little cauldrons. I ordered the mini cauldrons online. They are available here. The black cauldrons are about 2.5 inches tall and 3 inches wide.
I also ordered a huge bin of Jelly Belly candies online here. They sell them at Costco too! So, if you have a membership to Costco that is the best and most economical place to buy them. Jelly Belly's have the best Every Flavor Beans look, because there are so many different flavors of jelly beans in the container. I think this pack has like 30 kinds in it. To be honest, some of the flavors are a little bit crazy and gross, so the slogan of "A risk with every mouthful" is pretty accurate.
Slide the Every Flavor Beans sign into the jelly bean filled cauldrons. The beans keep the sign standing up straight. I think they tiny cauldrons are a perfect addition to a Halloween class party or any Harry Potter event! Add them to your dessert table or give them out as a prize for winning a game. Maybe Quidditch?!
