Haunting Potion Bottles

Make your coffee table, console table, or any surface with a tray fun and "scary" with some of these "custom" made potion bottles. This one is especially fun to do with the kiddos!!  All you have to do is find an assortment of different clear glass bottles and then simply pour  black acrylic paint into each one. Swirl the paint around until the entire inside is the color black. Pour out the excess paint. (If you are going to use the potion bottles for food or cut flowers, then just spray paint the outside of the glass bottle or jar with black spray paint.) Create your own labels with construction paper in different colors and write with different color markers. You can also make your own labels on the computer and let your imagination go crazy. The scarier the label the better!!!  Mummy Jars are so darn cute and SO easy to create. All you do is wrap any size glass jar with lots of rubber bands in all different directions. Make sure you leave plenty of exposed glass. Then spray paint with white spray paint. Let dry for about 2 hours. Take a sponge brush and paint two black eye balls with acrylic paint. Also add some eyebrows. Fill with Halloween candy for the touch of sweetness to an otherwise scary mummy.

Now, take those haunting bottles and display them on a tray and add other elements such at artificial black roses, etc.
