One of my favorite things to do is to go thrift stores. In our small town we have 3 little shops. I try to go to them about once every 2 weeks. I found these bottles on one of the thrift store hunts. When I saw them I knew exactly what I was going to do with them. If you are not lucky enough to find bottles at a thrift store I found similar ones you can purchase here.
I was thinking that I would give them a good scrub when I got them home. Didn’t do that because I decided the dustier, dirtier the better the bottles would look.
First, I looked on line for free printable labels. You can find labels all over the net. I like these from Itsy Bitsy Fun because they were funny and had the right shape and colors for my bottles. After I printed them on the printer, I cut them out. Then I used Mod Podge to adhere them to the bottles. I used more than was necessary because I wanted them to wrinkle a little.
These bottles did not come with corks. I probably could have purchased them on line. What would an old witch use to cover her spell bottles if she didn’t have corks? I found some parchment paper but it looked new and very white. How was I going to age it? I crumpled it up and them I scribbled on it with a brown marker. Then I dipped my finger in water and rubbed the scribble marks to blend them all together. They turned out pretty good if I do say so for myself. Using some twine, I tied the paper to the tops of the bottles. I didn’t like the way that looked so I tore the straight edges off the paper. Now, they look really old and used.
These spell bottle turned out so well when I showed them to my daughter(27) she wanted them to decorate her house. So there goes another craft to someone else. LOL
Do you decorate for Halloween? I would love to hear about them!
Thanks for stopping by.
