How do you like to decorate for Halloween? I’m all about cute Halloween decorations, but my husband likes spooky. I found this old shadow box at the thrift store and decided to turn it into a witches shelf. Magic Halloween Potion Bottles are exactly what every witch needs. My favorite witches are the Sanderson Sisters (Hocus Pocus). My husband wanted me to decorate the bottles like a mad scientist, but I went with cute magic potion bottles (it’s just how I am).

Dollar Store bottles to make DIY Potion Bottles


The hardest part of this project was getting the dollar tree tags off. They were stuck on there. I had glue all over my hands and used nail polish remover the glue. Also remove the shells from the bottles. To paint the inside of the bottles, I squirt a small amount of paint inside the bottle. Then rotate the bottle around slowly so the entire bottle gets covered with paint.

Painting tips for Halloween Potion Bottles

Leave the bottles upside down to dry. I do move the bottles around the paper plate (as they dry) so they don’t stick.

Letting DIY Potion Bottles Dry

It’s time to decorate the bottles. For each bottle I am going to put an image in vinyl and attach a small tag with the name of the potion on card stock with jute.

Creating Halloween Decorations with the Cricut and vinyl for Halloween Potion Bottles

In Cricut Design Space™ I chose the images with my Cricut Access Premium and cut them in permanent vinyl. Then use Transfer Paper to add the images to the potion bottles.
