Wicked Wednesday: Toil & Trouble Potion Bottles

Eye of newt. Toe of frog. Wool of bat...

Do you have a hard time keeping all your essential witches brew ingredients neat & organized? Now that I have created these stylish, yet functional potion bottles I can keep all my ingredients fresh and at my warty fingertips! ***insert witches cackle here***

I picked up these bottles at a yard sale a while back (only .75 cents for all three...what a deal!) with the intention of making them into potion bottles for Halloween and I finally got around to doing it.  I was pleased to find that this Shakespeare quote stamp from the Toil & Trouble set fit almost perfectly on the bottles. I used some retired DSP scraps from three different packs... Cast-a-spell,  Pick Your Poison & Witches Brew. The Witches Brew paper is still available right now on the Clearance snatch yourself up a pack! I also used some Witches Brew Washi Tape and some Raven Black Lace Trim around the neck of each bottle. The Raven Trim is still available on the Clearance Rack as well.

We're getting ready for our annual party so I've been busy making all sorts of spooky projects. Take a look at these melting black candles I made. I'll have these set out on our food table and not have to worry about anyone setting their costume or wigs on fire.

Can you guess what they are made from? The cardboard rolls from plastic wrap & foil packaging, a glue gun & hot glue sticks, black spray paint and those battery operated votive candles. Pretty awesome way to recycle and a super cool, yet inexpensive prop for our party. I cannot take credit for thinking this up though...I saw it on a Halloween site a few years ago and thought it was a great idea.

Thanks for stopping by...have a wicked good day!
