Halloween Apothecary Bottles | Halloween Printable Included

Hello all! Halloween is coming and I'm in full on Halloween decorating mode. Every year, I love to add to my decorations for our annual Halloween party and this year I wanted to create a set of Halloween Apothecary Bottles. I thought these would be perfect to go along with my costume this year - a witch! Keep reading to learn how to create your own Halloween Bottles and to download the free printable I created.

1.  Begin by collecting glass jars from various food items - such as spaghetti sauce, jelly, etc. 
2.  Clean the jars and remove any labels using UnDu.
3.  Spray paint the lids with black spray paint and let dry.
4.  Print the Halloween Bottle Labels using the free printable you can download below.

5.  Cut out the labels and apply Distress Ink using: Vintage Photo, Pumice Stone and Walnut Stain. Use a foam blending tool to blend the inks and give the labels a more distressed, vintage look.
6.  To adhere the labels to the jars, use Therm O Web Sticky Dots. Simply lay the label onto the adhesive, peel it up and stick it onto the jar.
7.  Repeat this for each label.

Once you are finished with the labels, you are ready to fill your jars. Here are some ideas of various things you can use: 
  • Bat Wings - wing shapes cut from black cardstock and bent to give them a little dimension (you could also use plastic bats)
  • Bone Dust - Baby Powder
  • Bat Wings - Black craft feathers
  • Liquid, such as the Poison and Spider Venom, use food coloring or spray ink to dye the water in various colors
