Hi from Belgium!

Romy (my 12yo stepdaughter) will try to earn some money selling handmade jewelry on our local (once a year) flea market / garage sale.
Therefore the three of us made these Harry Potter potions.
We are going to turn them into necklaces with a piece of twine (no pictures yet, I will add those later on).





If I recall correctly, this is what we put into the bottles:
Love potion: water, red ink and glass sead beads.
Poisonous potion: water, coffee, sand, herbs, peppercorns, raisins.
Change potion: water, green ink, herbs, a dead fly (was already dead).
Translocate potion: water, blue ink, pieces of walnut.
Lucky potion: water, orange ink, seadbeads, (plastic) diamond.
Beauty potion: water, yellow ink, seadbeads, (plastic) diamond.

We sealed the bottles (or rather: the corks) with glue and clear nail polish, but we still had some leakage, so in the end I sealed them with varnish for wooden floors. That did the job.

We will add a warning notice, saying not to open the bottles, since their contents are unhealthy and will leave bad stains (they contain permanent ink).

Romy (and I) would love to know what you think of them!
Thank you for looking.
BeaG

PS: if you're not able to read their labels, that's because they are written in Dutch...

Thank you both!

Edeneadams, I'm not sure where I bought the little bottles, since they have been in my stash for years. My best guess is that I bought them on Marktplaats, a Dutch affiliate of eBay.

I love the idea, and the fact that you added so many different things in the bottles makes them even more fun Tongue Good luck on the market
