Today I will show you how to turn old medicine bottles into super cool Halloween decorations in 5 steps!
This tutorial is pretty easy and doesn’t cost a lot of money.
What you need:
- Empty medicine bottles. Remove the labels.
- Acrylic craft paint. (I used black, pewter grey, true green, and jack o’ lantern)
- Paint brushes. (a medium to large size soft brush, a small detail brush, and a stiff bristle brush for dry brushing)
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Paint the bottles black. One coat is good for now.
Let them dry completely.
Use the glue gun to write your label on the bottles and allow the glue to cool.
Give the bottles another coat of black paint. Make sure you get full-coverage.
Let them dry.
Now take your dry brush and lightly dip it in the grey paint.
Blot off most of the paint on a piece of paper.
Very lightly brush the paint all over the bottle. You want it to look streaky and show the black base coat.
Use your detail brush to paint the letters.
I wanted mine to feel like a Tim Burton set so I only used one coat to let the base show through.
There they are!
