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.


Supplies used:

  • Wine Bottles
  • Black Acrylic Paint
  • Paper Towels
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint Brush
  • Free Halloween Potion Printables (you can get them by clicking on the link provided)

Step 1:

I had these bottles in my craft room just waiting to be used. I used two wine bottles and one vintage style glass bottle.

Step 2:

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.

Step 3:

Once the mod podge textured paper towel layer was dry I painted the bottles black. I used black acrylic paint.

Step 4:

It will take at least 2 layers of acrylic paint to cover the bottles completely.

Step 5:

Once the bottles were painted and dry. I wrapped twine a few times around the top of the bottle.

Step 6:

These cute skulls were plastic rings that I cut off the ring part and hot glued them on the end of the twine.

Step 7:

Lastly I mod podged the Halloween potion labels onto the bottles. You can get the FREE printable labels from the link I provided.
