I’ve created these darling Potion bottle labels that you can add to any bottle for some easy and cute Halloween decoration.
Attention potion-makers! Are your Elixir bottles not quite living up to their full potential? If you’re looking to spruce up your concoctions with an eye-catching, professional potion bottle label, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve created some unique designs on my iPad and I’ll show you how to cut them out!
Notice- the oil of boil is from Hocus Pocus.
and Aqua Tofana is from Bailey Sarian!
Supplies to make potion bottles
- Empty bottles! I grabbed a variety of jars, candles, and vases from the Dollar Tree.
- Or make your own bottles (tutorial down below)
- My potion labels printable (it’s in my shop!)
- Printable vinyl
- Electronic cutter (optional!)
These printables come in two different versions. Colored and in brown. You can pick and use whatever one you like the most!
How to use the potion bottle label printables
If you are looking for a great printer to use – I love my HP! I wrote up a whole post why The reasons I love the printer. This post also shows how you can make sure you are getting the best prints by adjusting your settings!
IF YOU DON’T HAVE A PRINTER: You can also upload the files to Staples or Office Max and have them print them! Sometimes the local library has a printer for public use!
These labels can be cut out in two different ways!
The first way to use these printables is with an electronic cutter
If you have a silhouette cameo or a Cricut, you can use the print-then-cut feature! You will need to upload the image into your silhouette studio or Cricut design space. When you select print then cut you will get the registration marks in the corner so the cutter can read those and know where to cut! You will send the printables to your printer directly in that software.
The Second way to use these printables without an electronic cutter
If you don’t have a cutter, you can easily cut these out with scissors! Most are pretty straight cuts! Just print them out from your computer and then hand-cut the designs out with scissors.
Then just peel off the backing and stick them to your potion jar or bottle!
DIY Potion bottles
Of course, you can also DIY your own option bottles!
I collected any vitamins, spice jars, or empty jars that we had! I didn’t even peel off the paper labels on them! I added some hot glue to make it look like the elixir is dripping out. You can also add outlines around the bottles to frame your labels.
I used matte black spray paint- I like the look of the matte but you can use any colo of paint!
Once the spray paint is dry, I lightly brushed over brown and gold paint to make the bottle have dimension and look aged. Brush some on, and then using a paper towel, wipe off any access.
I added some Spanish moss and twine as well as eyeballs, bats, spiders etc! Whatever you want! Then just peel off the backing of the printable vinyl and apply it to your bottle!
Look how cute all these bottles look together.
And here is the colored labels! I can’t pick a favorite! They all look so cool!
Pair these cute apothecary jars with a DIY spell book!
Throw a potion party!
A fun activity for kids to do would be a potion party! Have them pick their bottles and fill them with all the fun supplies they want! Eyeballs, spiders, etc! (I grabbed all my supplies from the dollar tree!) Have them finish them off with a fun label!
