BITE Halloween Décor from Reused Glass Bottles
I swear I am not a hoarder (unless you are talking about craft supplies or something that could be made into a good craft!) Okay so I might have a few empty pringles cans that have been in my possession for over a year because I know I can create them into something awesome – we will just forget to tell my husband about those! I also have a problem getting rid of glass bottles and jars. If you are a pickle jar, snapple bottle, or in this case a Hubert’s Lemonade bottle I will wash you up clean as new and make you into something great.
Hubert’s lemonade has become a guilty pleasure that I often grab on my grocery trips. The empties were gathering up on my counter so I decided to take the labels off using my not-so-secret-anymore method and try to make them into something with a fall or Halloween theme.
I originally planned to coat the entire inside of the bottle but as it was coming along I decided that the half painted bottles looked an awful lot like blood and I loved it. Happy mistakes are the best! I let the bottles dry upside down for a few days and then brought them inside and added ‘B-I-T-E’ with black vinyl letters. Now I have creepy décor I am proud of and all I purchased was the paint!
