My husband and I are big fans of the TV show Grimm, and I always say I’d love to work in Rosalee’s Spice Shop. So it was fun to make these Halloween Potion Bottles with some supplies from Oriental Trading. They are so easy to make and would fit right in on a shelf in Rosalee’s shop.What you will need to make these:
Drink Bottle Labels
Multi-Surface Acrylic Craft Paint
RibbonThe labels that I used from Oriental Trading are actually made for adhering to 2-Liter pop bottles. They come in a package of 12 so you have plenty to use for pop at your Halloween parties too!
To make the labels for your potion bottles though you’ll have to shrink them. To do that scan the labels into your computer and then open them up in any program where you can edit the image. Crop it down so you have just the main image and its outer frame, if you crop a bit bigger that’s fine just make sure that the portion that will go on your bottles is sized to 3 inches by 3 inches when cut out. Then print it out on your printer and cut around the border lines, set aside for later in the craft.Using the multi-surface paint, paint a few of the plastic bottles in various colors. I chose to use the Carrot and Chestnut Brown colors from the Martha Stewart set linked above, and then I mixed some red and blue together from paints I already had. The bottles will need two or three coats of paint. Be sure to let each coat dry before you paint the next one.Once the painted bottles are completely dry, cover the back of the labels in a thin coat of white glue or Modge Podge and then attach the labels to the bottles. Then add a strip of ribbon around the threaded top portion of the bottle to give it a finished look.Now you have a few spooky potion bottles to add to your Halloween décor.Oriental Trading has over 400 new Halloween items live on their site!
