Easy and Inexpensive Halloween Decor

I love the fall, when the leaves start to change and there is that fresh, crisp breeze in the air. Halloween is another thing I love about the fall.  I love to decorate and to be a kid again.  I am slowly building up on my Halloween d├ęcor and I am always looking for inexpensive crafts to add.  In September, I was walking around my local Michaels, when I spotted these little bottles.  I believe they were around $1.19 each.  I thought they were fun and immediately thought of potion bottles for Halloween. 


I have seen plenty of free printable Halloween potion labels on Pinterest this season. I wanted to keep it simple and get it done sooner rather than later, so I found these little labels in the Halloween scrapbook section.


I believe they were around $3.99.  I took them home and decided which label would look best on each bottle and then I distressed them up a bit.  They were a little to crisp and clean for the look I was going for.  They are made of cardstock, so I just bent them to give them a more aged and wrinkled look.  I took some distressing ink to them as well.  I used Modge Podge to attach them to the glass bottles.  The finishing touch was some food colored water. 



Its hard to see the food coloring in this picture.  I think they are super cute and worked perfectly in my Halloween display. 


The wine bottles were projects from last year, using Print and Cut labels by Silhouette.  I’ll post more of my Halloween display later.

I hope you find this a quick and easy project you can complete today!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
