I soaked off the label and replaced it with a black and white piece of scrap book paper and then with a new label. I found 1 piece of scrap book paper that was filled with all sorts of "poison" tags. I made all of the following bottles out of that one piece of paper. It was a couple of dollars. I loved how many bottles that one piece of paper made!
I really like these guys stacked. I also decided to put spice the tops of these just in case I decided not to stack them.
I was also quite pleased with the candy I found to fill these with. Don't even wonder...I got the candy at the dollar store. I give them WAAAAAAY more than just ONE of my dollars!
The next bottles are to die for...seriously...I found these bottles at "BIG LOTS". I love to frequent this store around Halloween. These were not in the Halloween section. They were in the really clearance section. They were leftovers from their beach and summer selection. I paid only 1.25 a bottle. The are big and perfect for my purposes!
I loved the twine weaving that was on the outside of the bottles but I removed the shells. The orange bottle did not have anything on it so all I had to do to it was put a label on it! EASY! CHEAP Halloween Decorations! NICE!!!!
I love this one...probably cuz it was free. I simply could not put it in the garbage! I started by spraying the plastic with a light coat of this "Glossy Wood Tone" spray. The plastic takes it well. It gave the bottle a nice brown aged look.
I glued black glitter to the top of the lid.
I finished it off with string pulled from a piece of burlap. He looks great mixed in with all of my other poison bottles!
The inside is even funner! Is "funner" even a word? What I am trying to say is that I like the inside book too! :]
This is what the book looked like before. I bought it at Michael's Craft Store. It was on sale for 6 bucks!
I decoupaged scrap book paper to the front and back pages.
I used hot glue on parchment paper to form the wording and spider webs. Once the glue dried I glittered them.
I used modge podge to adhere the lettering and spider webs to the book.
Next, I added Glitter leaves, twine bows, a little skeleton guy and a glittery spider near the spine of the book. I made sure to place these accents in a way that I could still open the book.
The inside is even funner!(is funner even a word?) I found travel sized bottles in a cheap plastic traveling make up bag. It was 2.00. I figured they would make great poison bottles for my witch book.
I just labeled them with a poison label I digitally downloaded.
I wanted the bottles to be "nested" with moss. I think it looks creepy and it keeps the bottles in place. I just hot glued it all along the bottom of the box.
Once the bottles were filled with candy they got a twine bow, and I snuggled them into the moss.
I love the inside just as much as the outside! I can't decide if I should leave it open or shut!?! :]
