Time for another DIY Halloween decor idea!
If you missed the last one, we shared how to make a Creepy Toe Pincher Coffin.
Today, we’re showing off our DIY Labeled Potion Collection with Display Box. From the wooden stained tray to the little labels on each jar, this box of potions is a fun and easy addition to add to your spooky Halloween decor this year.
First, we gathered little glass jars and bottles. We had a few from other projects, but we still needed more, so we popped into our local second-hand store (Goodwill/Deseret Industries/Salvation Army) and searched high and low for any unique little glass containers that would work well for our set-up that we had in mind. Once we found a few, we lined all of them up on our entryway table, took some measurements to find out about how big we’d need to make a custom tray to fit them all onto, and then started building something that would work.
We used our favorite pre-cut wood again, from Lowe’s, cut our pieces down to the sizes we needed, stained them with Cabot’s Aged Leather wood finish, used a pin nailer to assemble the whole thing, and then lined the bottom with a small piece of some leftover high-end wrapping paper that I had picked up a few weeks back when I did our DIY scattered herringbone framed art project.
of years, or little things we’ve picked up for a few dollars; so I
promise, everything is pretty budget-friendly. It’s been fun trying to create a totally different look with most of the stuff we already had, and I can’t wait to show you!
