Hi Everyone! I was going to recycle or buy some bottles to paint either black or purple to make Halloween Decorations. But I saw plenty for sale at Walmart and Dollar General. These two bottles, I bought at Dollar General for three dollars each. They already came with the label and the skeleton cork topper. These are perfect to use to add your own unique touches.
For the first bottle I used a crown for the skeleton head. I dry brushed some purple paint on the skeleton head and the bottle. The bottle was already a very deep purple but it wasn’t prominent enough for my taste. The crown was made from two buttons.
I added black eyelash trim around the edge of the neck. A boa was too thick but the eyelash trim was perfect. For the beads, I didn’t glue them on, I just loosely draped them so they could be changed around to the owners content.
For the second bottle I added a witch hat. This bottle was totally matte black with an aqua colored label. I added more purple paint than I did with the first bottle.
The hat and spider web came from a halloween pick I bought at Walmart. The hat was the perfect size. It doesn’t fit all that well because it had a flat bottom. So I hid that portion with some pipe cleaners that came with the witch hat pick.
Thank you for reading all about my spooky bottles. If you drink wine, you could make these with recycled bottles. Paint your bottle with Rustoleum 2x Paint and Primer first with flat black. Then you can paint over that with purple, orange, etc. Give it a try. Make some for Christmas and other holidays too.
