Upcycled Vanilla bottles for Halloween decor!

After baking, I almost threw these out...then a spell came over me and suddenly I was saving these little bottles for Halloween decor!  I wish now I had saved more. Imagine a display of potions and poisons for that perfect touch of spooky decor.

 To give the bottles a little tint, I added a few drops of Ranger Alcohol inks.  Add a spider of any kind for a bit of creepiness. I used Pink Paislee Phantom stamps and papers. We are Memory keepers twine, and smudged a little bit of black paint. I also added Ranger crackle accents to the skull image.
the skull and cross bones on the left are from the cricut chic and scary.

Halloween is not the only reason to save these little gems..Think of Valentines day..Love potion.. and the cap is already red!  just a few drops of Ranger alcohol inks and maybe a heart tag... how cute would that be?

Now go raid your pantry and see what you can make with these empty bottles. think about the pretty glass spice jars too!
