Reclaimed Spooky HALLOWEEN poison bottles


Since I have about 1billion projects going at once and another billion just up in my head...I thought I would show you something I did last night as I was cleaning out..(never finished that, because while I was cleaning I found these bottles..:)) My work shed....UGH!!
I remembered that I had a graphic from none other than the GRAPHICS FAIRY (LOVE HER!!) So since I had multiple size bottles I wanted different size graphics. I used the arsenic label 2 times then cut just the skeleton out, etc.......I glued them on the bottles and then used modge podge to cover the labels. I love to tatter the edges of the paper to make the labels look old.
I want to thank my friend Danny for these bottles. He is as big a thrift er as me and hates to see things go to waste. Well he has been "collecting" these old bottles for a while. He lives by a body of water, which he lovingly calls "the swamp" and finds all of these old bottles that people have just thrown into the water....:( Well everyone knows how much I love a re-use, so when he offered me these bottles..(I believe his wife made him get rid of his "collection" ) I could not refuse. I knew I would use them for something, and here they are, all ready to be used as a spooky Halloween decoration. I even left the dirt and such in the bottles since they are "vintage". I wanted them to keep there vintage feel...
I hope you have a spooky, and BEAUTIFUL day!!! :)

Thanks for sharing the secrets of how you made your spooky Halloween bottles. I'm like you, I have IN MIND to do that (more ideas than time) but YOU actually did it! My husband is about to the point of making me get rid of my bottle "collection" too...he says it makes us look like wine-os to see all the bottles in the storage room. I saw your post over at "At the Picket Fence".
