Making Halloween "Boo" Bottles

October 1, 2008

  1. Clean bottle with hot soapy water. Let dry. Wipe with alcohol.
  2. Paint entire bottle with black glass paint. You'll probably need about three coats for good coverage. Be sure to let totally dry between coats.
  3. Paint your ghosts and pumpkins with white and orange paint. Again you'll need several coats to cover.
  4. Paint on large "boo". (You can barely see this on the sides of the bottle.)
  5. Let it all dry for about a day, then spray with the clear paint.
  6. Tie raffia around the top and insert corks.
  7. Glue felt to bottom of bottle.

I can't paint enough of these. Everyone loves them! Try them with the candles, too.
