I am one of those crafters that can't walk past anything without figuring out what I can do with it.
I just recently completed the Mini 13 Days of Halloween swap and got to make an awesome bottle for Momof2! I liked how it came out so much that I made 2 for myself.
These started with empty wine bottles that I kept from my recent photography show. I washed them out and let them soak in hot, soapy water to remove any labels. It took about 3 solid coats of gold spray paint to cover everything up. After that, I sprayed them with a mixture I made that consisted of red screen printing ink and some water for the blood splatter effect. The twine is hot glued around the neck as well as the cap. The labels are Martha Stewart that I purchased 3 or 4 Halloweens ago. The ping pong ball eye as well as the severed finger were purchased at the dollar store.
This started as an olive oil holder that I purchased at Goodwill for $3. It was an ugly wooden box and had no bottles. I happen to horde bottles with corks so this worked out perfectly! I sanded the box to get the logo off and then spray painted it black. The white splatter is from spray painting a couple feet above the box and letting it drip through the air and onto the box. The bottles are filled with half solid color/ half glow glitter so they have a faint glow after being exposed to light. Again, the labels are Martha Stewart.
Hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed making them. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!
