• Witches Apothecary Shop - Witch Bottles

    Free Tylenol-hwd_-009.jpg One of our family's favorite decorations are our "Witches" bottles. A complete Apothecary for a Witch. This fun project
    creates gorgeous bottles that will delight any visitor who enters your home.

    You will need:

    • Strong Coffee or Tea
    • Bottles of Varying Shapes/Sizes
    • Decoupage Glue (You can Make your Own)

    First- Find some interesting jars and create labels and print them, plain white paper works fine. I recommend a nice gothic style font such as Blackadder or chiller. Let it dry for 5 minutes. Do not skip this step as your ink will run or smudge.

    Crinkle it into a ball. (I know, I know, this is SOOO Hard!)

    Un-crumple your labels and place in a 9x13 pan with really strong tea or coffee.
    Let the page saturate for a few minutes before taking it out. This will "age" your labels and make them look Authentic.

    Blot it very gently to remove excess liquid. Allow to dry.

    If you'd like your labels to be darker, submerge them again, dry.

    Once they are dry, carefully cut out each label with a pair of scissors.

    Attach the label with Glue. (The easiest way is to paint the back of the label and then apply it to the jar. Let it dry completely.

    Once it is dried, paint a layer of Decoupage Glue over the label. This will give it a shine that will make it look quite authentic, plus it will seal your label and protect it.

    Alternatively, prior to cutting out your labels you can spray them with acrylic finishing spray. I prefer the decoupage method personally.

    Place them on a shelf with some back lights to illuminate the contents.

    In this bottle, the Contents are Ogre Boogers.

    "Harvested from Ogres within the swamps of sadness. Use to induce everlasting sorrow."

      I have several very old bottles that were found when my mother purchased a house that was over 100 years old. We were tilling a garden, and they were buried in the yard! I was so psyched to find them. I could easily use them for this! There are even some old glass medicine (maybe aspirin?) bottles that would look awesome for this project. I'm wondering though, would the labels be easily removed? I'd hate to devalue them. I can't wait to make these for Halloween!
