Pick Your Poison: Altered Halloween Bottles


So, Mr. Chocolate likes an adult beverage from time to time which means I get some pretty cool bottles. I’m not saying I encourage him to drink the contents faster or anything .
Altered Halloween Bottles
I’m upgrading our Halloween d├ęcor each year to a more muted palette. I started with a crackled kraft colored scrapbook paper that went around each bottle followed by a black and white polka dot paper with torn edges. Mod Podged these on.

On the top and bottom of the paper, I added a row of sequened ribbon using double sided tape. Then I went to my sticker stash and had a round silver and rhinestone frame sticker from Making Memories and a silver foil sticker leftover from  a previous project.
I picked up a package of “poision labels” at Michaels from their Recollection line ( 40% off of course) and those went on the bottles. Finished with black velveteen ribbon around the neck ( which already had a black wax finish…perfect!) added a button, and a skull rhinestone leftover from last year’s cards.

These. are. awesome! Love love love, Carol! I, too, am toning down the Halloween decorations...not lessening them, just muting the colors...I think they're creepier that way...;) Halloween is my fave...

Christine said...

Very very sophisticated! I love recycling bottles in cool ways--yours came out terrific!

Caroline @ Artfully Caroline said...

I would drink any poison from these elegant bottles! Try and stop me!

Miss Kitty said...

Very creative idea! Thanks so much for sharing how to make these Halloween bottles. I want to try some myself after seeing yours.

Every year I say I'm going to do something cool with bottles, but, alas, it hasn't happened yet! You're my inspiration! Very elegant, yet festive, I love them. You're a magician with paper....:D

These are awesome! And I'm lucky enough to have a sister that's a bartender, so any time I need bottles for projects, she always has tons for me. Thanks for such a cute idea!

Your bottles look so elegant Carol. Switch out the "poison" labels and you have the perfect decorative touch for anytime of the year, I'd say.
