DIY Spooky Halloween Poison Bottles

Thrifty Thursday

We are still ghouling-it-up around here at Zest.  It is the day before Halloween weekend and there is still time to add some haunting flare to your home before guests arrive.  I love this project because it is effortless and the result is way too fun!  There is something so dang rewarding when you can bust out a cool project just by gathering a few things around the house that you already have.  Seriously gratifying.

All you need are some empty bottles, some chalk paint and either some stickers or some printable labels.

Remove the corks or caps, and give your bottle a dunk for a drippy texture.

Let the excess drip off before you flip it over to create your “drips.”

Once you achieve the drip marks that you like, flip it back over so that it can dry without the paint completely covering the bottle.

For another look, fill a bottle with the chalk paint and shake it up!

This technique will keep the glass sheen when it dries.

Finally, for a third look, paint the exterior of the bottle with the chalk paint.  You will have to do two coats, but when it dries it will take on a really cool effect.

The final step, once they are dry, is to give your bottles some spooky labels.  These we picked up at Michael’s for cheap, but you can easily print you own.

Spooky, spooky.
