Craft: How I made my Harry Potter potions

Anyone who is on my facebook or twitter account would have seen over the past week I have spammed both with my potion bottles - I'm not sorry, I love them and still have empty bottles at home......

The bottles come from various car boot sales averaging around 50p each.  The love potion is actually a perfume bottle (and my favourite).

I bought some Florabase Natural Raffia from Hobbycraft which cost me £2.59 and used it to decorate the necks of the bottles

The labels are from Overthebigmoon.com

The "potion" itself is just water with food colouring in (so much fun with these)!

And that's it!

Several sizes later and I have my potion bottles ready for Halloween - and I think they can just live in the kitchen after that :)

  5. I just saw these, then noticed the date, I'm only a year late! I do love them though. And if you're a Potter fan I heard there's a new book in the pipeline.

    1. Thanks Louise, never too late for Halloween bottles though :)
      I did hear a rumour of a new story but I was unsure if it was film or book so I'm pleased it will be a book
