Spooky Halloween Apothecary Display
I’m on a roll with my Halloween decorations this year. I’ve already made my 15 minute Boo Pumpkins, my glam skulls, and my eerie Halloween wreath. Today, I want to share my spooky Halloween apothecary display. I made a lot of it with some cool Martha Stewart Halloween craft supplies. I will show you how I made this metallic spider pumpkin and used Martha Stewart Halloween beverage labels on recycled jars for some frightful looking props.
- Craft Pumpkin
- Martha Stewart Crafts ™ Metallic Craft Paint
- Paint brush
- Martha Stewart Crafts ™ Spider Pumpkin Transfers
- Wet Paper Towel
- Old jars, all sizes
- Black card stock
- Scissors or paper cutter
- Double-sided tape
- Martha Stewart Crafts™ Gothic Manor Beverage Labels
Metallic Spider Pumpkin
First I used Martha Stewart Crafts ™ Metallic Craft Paint and a craft pumpkin I found at the Goodwill for 99 cents!
I ended up painting two coats, plus one touch up. Here is the first coat. Make sure the paint dries completely in between coats.
Next, I followed the instructions for the spider pumpkin transfers. Cut out the desired transfer.
Remove the transparent covering and place it on the pumpkin. Dampen the transfer with a wet paper towel.
Remove the white paper. I found that you can use the wet paper towel to gently smooth out the spider.
Repeat this process until you have all your spiders in place.
Spooky Apothecary Bottles
I have been saving these bottles for a while because I like the shape.
The labels were impossible to remove, so I covered them with black cardstock.
Next, I simply placed my Gothic Manor Beverage Label on top. I made some other labels for the smaller jars. I added a skull with a rhinestone on one of them and typed “Cerebrospinal Fluid of Unwelcome Intruders” on an old lotion bottle.
There you have it! With the help of some old books, a metal cabinet, and the spider lace doily I made, these fun crafts make a perfect frightening Halloween apothecary display!
What are you crafting up for Halloween this year???
