You will start this project with 3 glass bottles. Any kind you have on hand will do. You can see a list of where I purchased each item by clicking on the link.

I had these bottles in my craft room just waiting to be used. I used two wine bottles and one vintage style glass bottle.
I use this technique all the time to create texture on items. It’s super easy. You will rip paper towel pieces up and mod podge them on your bottle. This creates a really cool effect when it dries.
They will take some time to dry. I let the 3 bottles dry over night. To make sure they were ready to paint.
Once the mod podge textured paper towel layer was dry I painted the bottles black. I used black acrylic paint.
It will take at least 2 layers of acrylic paint to cover the bottles completely.
Once the bottles were painted and dry. I wrapped twine a few times around the top of the bottle.
These cute skulls were plastic rings that I cut off the ring part and hot glued them on the end of the twine.
Lastly I mod podged the Halloween potion labels onto the bottles. You can get the FREE printable labels from the link I provided.
