I’m very excited that October has arrived and my decor can shift from fall to Halloween! We all know that Martha is the Queen of Halloween, so when I had the chance to get my hands on some Martha Stewart Decoupage fit for spoooooky Halloween Crafts I just couldn’t say no.
You’ll be so surprised how easy it is to create these Apothecary jars that you’ll consider opening your own festive pharmacy!
I found this a great assortment of glass jars at a yard sale, just begging to be given a new purpose!
For this Decoupage project you will need:
-Vessels of choice, mine are glass
(this medium creates a durable finish on glass, fabric, paper, metal, and wood)
-Martha Stewart Decoupage Multi-Surface Matte Finish
-1 pkg. Martha Stewart decoupage paper cutouts
This decoupage project really is as easy as 1-2-3!
1. Prep your bottles. Give a good wash, and a rub with alcohol to remove any residue. Punch desired labels from your Martha decoupage paper-cut outs.
2. Using Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Durable Matt Finish decoupage medium, brush a thin coat on the area you intend to stick your label.
To make the bottle look like it contains eyeballs, I applied the decoupage medium to the front side of the eyeball cutouts and overlapped them on the back of the bottle.
3. Using a damp rag, wipe excess medium off of the bottle, as close to the label as possible. Allow to dry approx 3 hours or overnight.
Fill your bottles with creepery and get working on your spells!
I used water, food colouring, dollar store bats and spiders to fill my jars.
The decoupage medium is dishwasher safe, machine washable, non-yellowing, drys hard with no tack, can be used indoors or out, and is available at Michaels.
