Halloween Bottles

I was reading my October issue of Country Living and was totally inspired.  What do you think?




I think they are cute.




This is what I was drooling over and fell in love with the pottery. I really wanted to come up with something similar.




I just took some bottles (love bottles and jars) and took the labels off.




I took them outside and shot them with Rust-oleum heirloom white.




I gave them a couple of coats and let them dry completely.



I found and printed some free Halloween printables.



Then, I copied the images onto some velum paper.



Cut them out and glued them on.  I just used some tacky glue.  I let the ink dry for a long time and applied the glue to the inked side.  I am going to modge podge them when the glue dries.  I was too excited and wanted to take some pictures first (I may just leave them too).  To get the clip art I used, please go to Nest of Posies.  She has a really cool blog.



I am very pleased with the way they turned out. 



Happy Haunting.

  7. Rhonda, your bottles really caught my eye over at the Tickled Pink party at 504 Main. I'm so glad I came by. You did a beautiful job, and I'm definitely going to add this craft to my "must-do" projects for the fall!

  52. Yes, they ARE great. Yours came out every bit as good as theirs. (And you are reminding me to dust off my Halloween 'poison' bottle labels that I made last year, and add them to our 'Halloween Central'. You should check 'm out as bottles with these labels would so perfectly complement the ones you just made. )
