Craftster User Nyte Rayn inspired me to make this, here is the post that Nyte Rayn posted. Thank you Nyte Rayn.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=267807.0

Made from recycled bottles and jars, food colouring, sparkles, beads, old cloth, ribbon and twine, I put some water and some vinegar in the hopes that the water won't go all gross by halloween. 
I got the labels here.

Here is a picture of the sparkles and beads although it doesn't show too well, but you get the idea.
I used a green recycled hawaiian lai for something that looks like the tentacles of a swamp monster or something. 
I got the names for the potions off of the net, I would like to give credit to the person who had them, but I cannot find their page now.  I just searched for potion names I think.

I put my printed page in a glass dish with some hot brewed dark tea and then let it soak until it looked brown.  I then dried it with a hair dryer, when it was dry I crumpled it up.  I used mod podge, you could just use white glue and a bit of water i'm sure it would work the same.  I also painted a coat of the mod podge over the containers for a cloudy look of glass.
For the Unicorn potion I added some white plastic ribbon shreaded thinly to look like hair added sparkles and jewled beads.
Comments welcome, thanks for looking. Cheesy

I might have to borrow this idea.  My mom has "the scary house" on the block for halloween, and last year added a medieval mad scientist table (brain in a jar, candles, chaffing dishes, worms in test tubes, etc etc etc)... some of these might be a neat addition to the table...

Go for it, it is a good way to recycle and they do add that touch to the mad scientist table.  I haven't never made them before.  Thanks for your comment.
