I have been working on these jars for a few weeks now. It is hard finding things to put in them that look real and spooky. I have not finished yet but here are the ones that i have done so far. I plan on making a shelf and putting them in the kitchen

Close up

Tutorial  Tutorial  Tutorial  Tutorial  Tutorial  Tutorial  Tutorial [/glow] 

Step 1 Design and print out your labels. I use word you can use what you like. Example: photoshop

Step 2 Boil some water and soak some tea bags on a cookie sheet. The stronger the tea water the darker the paper. You may use coffee in place of tea for this. Wear gloves so you dont stain your fingers

Step 3 Place your printed label sheet in the staining water. Ball up the paper and give it some texture.

Step 4 Place somewhere to dry I use a cookie sheet. You can let it air dry or blow dry or do like me and place it in the oven for a few minutes

in the oven

Step 5 Apply a gloss

Step 6 Allow gloss to dry or if you are like me you can get out the old school 1980s crafty blowdryer  Smiley

Step 7 Once dry cut out labels

Step 8 Apply double sided tape to the back of labels you may also use glue.

Step 9 Apply label to the bottle

10 Spray paint or use whatever kind of black paint you have to pain the lids black

11 Add finishing touches like twine and whatever you want to fill the jar with ( i have not filled these yet) once the lids are dry put them on the jars and ta da there you go Witch Kitchen Jars!

If you have access to a garden or just the outdoors, watch for the exoskeletons of grasshoppers and cicadas, even some spiders. They would add to your collection. I have a grasshopper exoskeleton in a spice jar and a bird skeleton and I have a bunch of vertebrae from a snake. I don't have any keen labels on my spice jars, just weird stuff in them.
