Spooky Potion Bottles and Dollar Store Tray

We finished our Spooky Potion Bottles and put together a little vignette for our breakfast room table.  I think they look really cool on our Dollar Store Skeleton Tray.

Halloween, Potion Bottles, Labels

We used 3 bottles of various sizes that were spray painted in black, silver and purple. The Life Renewal bottle was painted black with twine wrapped around the top and a skeleton hanging on the wrap. The purple bottle was also lightly sprayed silver to give it a distressed look.  Then yarn was wrapped around the top and a spider added. The lace on the Voodoo Love Potion Bottle was originally white that was dipped into watered down black paint to make it gray.   The white candles are Emergency Candles in a pack of six from  Dollar Tree. They were a bit smaller in diameter than a regular taper and fit perfectly in the two smaller bottles.  A little bit of red wax dripped down the side makes them look kind of spooky.

 The Life Renewal Potion label came from The Official Love Manor Blog

And I made the other two labels on PicMonkey with their awesome
Halloween options.  Feel free to download a copy of my labels to make
 your own Spooky Potion Bottles.

Dr. Sumruld's Spider Venom label says "With added Arsenic for an extra Bite"

And I really love the Voodoo Love Potion #9 label, again made in PicMonkey.  
After I ModPodged the label on I used Stickles glitter to outline the scrolls.

I got the idea for the tray from The House of Dewberry  Her tray is super spooky and has a cool crafty candle in the middle of it.  Thanks for the inspiration!

The tray started out as transparent black plastic and came from Dollar Tree.

Before


 I painted 2 coats of silver metallic spray paint on it and then dry brushed black paint on and wiped off the excess.


I just love how it turned out and the bottles wouldn't look half as good without it.

Had a little help with our photo shoot -





Leigh calls her Evil Cat but her real name is Jasmine.  She's loving my new light box because it is warm and has white paper on the bottom which she just loves to lay on.

Don't know if you can tell, but I'm having a blast making decorations for Halloween! Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks so much for following us. I am your newest follower too and I LOVE your concrete countertops! I want to build an outdoor grill station with concrete countertops someday! Have you seen the redneck margarita glasses? They are basically the same but use a small squat type of canning jar. Think I'm making some of those for my favorite Aunt for Christmas. Looking forward to see all of your creations! PS. Love the name of your blog!

  22. Oh, yes, it is quite obvious you are having a blast-and-a-half making Halloween decorations...and doing a whale of a job!!! Wow! All of this with dollar store purchases? Fantastic! I love what you did with the bottles! Dipping the lace in watered down black paint...never would have thought of that! The tray is just unbelievable!!! I know that took a bit of time and patience, and that totally paid off! Great job! Visiting from Yvonne's TT&T.
