Hey peeps! Today I’m sharing how I turned my TV stand into a “potion station” for Halloween!
It all started with some clear bottles… lots and lots of clear bottles! I wanted to make it look like all kinds of “ingredients” were stored here, so I rounded up all the clear jars and vases and bottles I had and mixed them up. I also brought in a few apothecary jars (which already had those dried sunflowers from last year.
Then, I found some Halloween labels on line, printed a few and taped them to the bottles.
I left some empty and used a variety of things I had around the house to fill those others including…
Broken up candle wax (for “Toad Tongues”)
Dried Rose Petals
Dried mini roses
Plastic Eggs that I usually use for Easter
Water mixed with Comet (Frog’s Blood)
Mouthwash (Snake Venom)
Orange face wash (Zombie Brew)
Then I laid these little dried purple flowers (pictured above) around them to add to the effect. I also brought out this cast iron pot I got at Target on clearance a couple years ago because I thought it had a cauldron vibe and added some white netting to make it look like it was bubbling. And of course I added a crow to it!
Throw in some candlesticks and a “deadly” topiary, and abracadabra: you’ve got a bewitching Halloween set up! (And it didn’t cost anything! #HollaForADolla)
So, find those clear jars/vases that you’ve got laying around, get creative with what you throw in them, print some spooky labels and you’ll be set for All Hallows’ Eve!
