Vintage Inspired Poison Bottles


Happy Fall, ya’ll!  I’m back from House Vintage, with a free and easy decoration to celebrate my favorite holiday… Halloween.  This project only takes a few minutes and can be made by recycling things you already have.

Step 1:
empty bottle
Look around the house.  Chances are you have some empty bottles that could use some up-cycling.  Make sure the bottles are clean, and remove any existing labels.  I find a soak in warm water or an adhesive remover works well for this.  I like to look for interesting glass containers like these beakers when I am out thrifting.  They are great for this project, but also look pretty with flowers in them other times of the year.

Step 2:
labels
There are many sites online where you can download Halloween labels for free.  The labels above are from The Graphics Fairy, but a quick Pinterest search will yield other options as well.  Download your labels and print them on adhesive backed paper.  If you don’t have adhesive backed paper, double-sided tape works too.  Cut each label out, and position onto your bottles.

Step 3: Fill and Display

I like to fill the bottles with water and food coloring to make them extra spooky.  Then set them among your Halloween decor for a great vintage inspired look, that won’t break the bank.
