What are you ghouls and goblins going to be up to this Halloween?! Hopefully some of your Halloween holiday fear will consist of making your very own Spooky Poison Bottles & Witch's Potion Jars to decorate your house with.
Although we don't have any solidified plans just yet I think I have my mind made up about my costume [home bound without plans or not]. I want to be a bat! There is the coolest T-shirt circling Pinterest that I absolutely need. Link to that spooky sweetness HERE. They sell it in different colors, black being the obvious choice. Whether I wear it with a pair of my favorite black or red rose linen shorts. Maybe I will convince my wife to be a vampiress? To be continued on that one...
I am not sure we will have a redo of last year's Halloween weekend; yet, we can be sure to make it fun, safe and spooky. We had a whole mess of festivities with family and friends planned and it was sure a blast. This year might be a bit more low key.
Whether you are keeping it low key or not, creep out your house with blacked out Spooky Poison Bottles and the ghoulish Witch's Potion Jars to get your spells done in your steaming cauldron just right!

Print out the poison and potion labels. Allow to dry.
Place glass bottles/jars in the box upside down, for the exception of one with a lid. Spray with chalkboard paint at all angles. Allow to dry for 20-30 minutes. Turn over, right side up, and repeat.
If needed, paint an extra coat and allow to dry.
Cut out your poison and potion labels. Designate which label will be adhered to each bottle/jar. Save the "Premium Quality Blood of Vampires" for your leftover clear bottle/jar with lid.
Plug in your hot glue gun.
Pour corn syrup into your leftover clear bottle/jar with lid. Add drops of red food coloring. Apply hot glue to the inside of the lid. Immediately twist on to seal. Allow to dry for 2-3 minutes. Once dry, softly shake until the corn syrup is bloody red.
Once your bottles/jars are dry, add a dab or two of mod podge onto a paper plate. Using your foam brush, apply mod podge to the back of each label and adhere to the bottles/jars. After adhering, dab some more mod podge onto the front of each label in order to secure tightly and prevent from water exposure or corrosion. Allow to dry.
Place your poison bottles and potion jars wherever you desire to enhance the look of your witching Halloween decor.
There are more printables on this downloadable document that you are free to use, if you have extra bottles and/or jars.
Using matte mod podge allows for the labels to blend in with the chalkboard spray paint.
