Halloween Bottles - Poison, Witch Hazel, Witch's Potion, Graveyard Dust

For whatever reason, I am more into Halloween this year.  Maybe it's because my kids are getting older, so we're moving from cutesy, closer to creepy.
While browsing link parties this week, I clicked through to Love Grows Wild to view Liz's DIY Poison Bottle. I've seen Halloween labeled bottles all over the place, but hadn't thought to make my own.  Not much of a drinker, I walked over to the F&B staff and asked if they could set aside some empty liquor bottles for me.  The bartender was just getting ready to make a big batch of bloody mary mix, so he set aside 4 large empty bottles of vodka.  Wash and remove labels.
I printed a few labels from doing a Google image search for "vintage poison labels".  There are so many great labels out there.  Verify the original source to make sure it is okay to use for personal use. Couple of sources for labels are here and here and here.
Cut out the label, apply Mod Podge to the bottle with a sponge brush, place the label and Mod Podge the entire glass bottle.  Let dry.
 The Mod Podge dried with a frosty finish.
 I cut some dead flowers for the witch hazel bottle and filled the witch's potion bottle with dark chocolate covered acai blueberries.
We bought a couple of the skeleton hand goblets from the grocery store early season.
 Cranberry juice makes a good poison.
These bottles are great for our upcoming Halloween party!
Supplies:  empty bottles, Mod Podge, sponge brush, printed labels.  10min project.
