DIY Halloween Witches Brew Ingredients Bottles
Whether you are having your very own witches and warlocks Halloween party with wicked cauldron witches, you need to know how to get through that Halloween witching hour with a Halloween witches cauldron. Next we want to know how to make a Halloween witches cauldron for even more fun, witches lair halloween decorations and a super cool halloween witch decorations diy. We hope that you love these DIY Halloween Witches Brew Ingredients Bottles.
Making your own Halloween crafts can be a very fun and rewarding task – You can customize Halloween DIY crafts to fit in with your own décor, while also using upcycled items and saving yourself the hassle of hunting things down at the store, and the money you’d spend on the items. Start saving small bottles, like spice bottles, or little jellies or syrup ones. Two of the ones I used are the cute syrup ones they give you at Cracker Barrel, two are from the flavored syrups you can buy for coffees or soda machines and one is a spice jar. You want them to look mixed up in sizes and not like a “spice set” as it’s hard to think of a witch having a cute, organized little set of those halloween witch potions.
DIY Halloween Witches Brew Ingredients Bottles – Halloween Witch Potions
- 4 or 5 glass bottles or spice jars with lids (Cracker Barrel syrup bottles are perfect)
- matte ivory spray paint
- Pewter metal finish spray paint (hematite or a dark silver or gold)
- Sharpie marker thin black
- black acrylic paint (plate, very thin brush and water cup)
- paper towels
- sticky labels
- Mod Podge
- To start the bottles for your halloween witch potions, clean and dry the bottles and lids thoroughly. This is to ensure that your paint sticks well.
- Add a label to each bottle where you think would be the best place to write your titles for our halloween witch decorations diy.
- Next spray paint all your bottles and lids with the matte ivory spray paint in a well-ventilated area for the witches lair halloween decorations. We chose to paint all but 2 of the lids with the ivory, because 2 were a dark brown already and so I left those the way they were. If they have a brand name on them, you definitely want to paint over that.
- Wait about 10 minutes and then go back and check the paint to see if it has any bare spots or needs another coat, and then spray it again lightly.
- Wait another 20 minutes or so to dry all the way for your halloween witch decorations diy. When you touch it, it shouldn’t feel tacky at all, so if it does, give it some more time. Humidity can be a big factor.
- Once it is good and dry, you will be spraying it with the metal paint. You don’t want this to look evenly coated, it is meant to look more like aging or spots on the bottle, from usage and time, so I shook mine up, but not as much as I would’ve normally. It gave it a more uneven spray. Try to keep in mind where your labels are on the bottles as you spray this part. Keep those areas from being completely covered in this paint. Hit all of your lids lightly with it too, but don’t totally cover. It needs to have a random and sporadic effect.
- Now, let them fully dry.
- Next paint or write on your ingredients. I was planning to paint mine on, but once I really looked at the space I was working with, I chose to use the sharpie marker. I could control it better and it worked just fine. If you want your wording darker than mine looks, I’d go with the paint.
- I googled the Witches Brew ingredient list from Macbeth, and then I threw in a few I knew from other things like “Deadly Night Shade” from the Nightmare Before Christmas. The Macbeth list had several good ones all by itself. I would try not to make your font on each bottle the same. Mix it up, so they don’t look like a set, as mentioned before.
- Let that dry and then Mod Podge liberally over any added elements to the bottle (label, etc.) to seal your label.
- Add any other details you’d like, like baker’s twine or ribbon. I added twine to 2 and I had a small piece of a rusty orange ribbon that was too small to do much else with, so I used it on there. That helps break up the look of the bottles, too, if you use more than one type.
These are just the cutest halloween witch potions bottles ever and they make the best witches lair halloween decorations and a cool halloween witch decorations diy for your spooky halloween witch potions. We hope that you are inspired by this DIY Halloween Witches Brew Ingredients Bottles. Happy crafting and Happy Halloween!
