Happy Sunday and YES! It’s October….the month of Halloween – my favorite time of year.
I just love to decorate my house for Halloween. The kids are getting older and they don’t care as much for Halloween as the Evil Queen of a Mother, but I don’t care. I decorate for me and whom else that like it.
I also enjoy making the decor myself and find it especially fun to Halloweenify ordinary files into something creepy.
For these spooky potion and poison bottles, I used AC Cardstock in Black, Plum, White and Apricot.
All edges are inked with Distress Ink and White Chalk ink from Ingvild Bolme.
I made some panels for the large bottle embossed it with a Swirly Embossing folder from Sizzix.
I also made these bottles into luminaries. I cut some different shapes (from the Witches High Top Boot from the JGW Bewitched Botique kit, Scratch Marks Design ID #118964 in the Silhouette Design Store along with the Skull Design ID #20905) Then I glued vellum behind the cutouts and finally I decorated with gems and various trinkets from my stash.
I found some cool strings of LED lights designed for bottles and used these in the large and small bottle. For the medium bottle I dropped in a color shifting LED light.
Now they are part of my spooky Halloween decorations in my living room and the truth be told….I think the kids like them.
Here a fun little video I made:
Thanks for joining me today – I’ll be back soon with more spooky Halloween projects.
