Witches Potion Bottles

I am a freak for different bottles, jars, and containers of all kinds. I always find uses for them and here is one I found awhile back that is just my cup of tea.

I've collected empty syrup, vinegar, worchestershire, marinade, and olive oil bottles, along with those jars that candles come in, over the past year. They made a great collection of potion bottles that make a nice Halloween display when grouped together on a tray
I also use mine for potions that I stir up in my kitchen for real.
I put up homemade vinegars, herbal oils for cooking and other recipes

Step 1: Witches Potion Bottles just 2 easy to do Steps

You'll need:

Assorted glass bottles
Black matte spray paint
Paper sack
Tea bag
Wine corks

1. Discard the caps and plastic rings, remove labels, wash the bottles well, and dry thoroughly.

2. Spray paint the bottles with several light coats (two of my jars have glass stoppers so I made sure they were painted, too)

3. Cut the sides of the paper sack so you have one large piece of paper and crumple into a ball. Soak it in a cup of hot water with the tea bag for a few minutes. Spread it flat to dry. I let them dry then cut the edges with shaped scissors for a ragged edge, and wrote on them with a super fine black pen
