Today, I am sharing how to make a spooky Halloween recycled bottle craft.
if you are a regular here you KNOW, Halloween is my favorite.
Actually, September, and October are my favorite months of the year.
I love to decorate per season, but Fall and Halloween hands down have it all over the rest of the year.
My friend gave me an empty Jack Daniels bottle thinking I could craft with it.
Well of course I can. I don’t drink the stuff so there would be no empty bottles around my house of that stuff.
I think I drank it once, and let’s just say, it wasn’t a pretty experience.
So, out came some simple craft supplies.
Purple rit dye
and my recycled Jack bottle.
First I painted the bottle with my gesso.
I lightly pat the bottle as you can see closely here with my artist brush so I get somewhat of a texture.
I then paint on the rit dye after letting the gesso, ALMOST dry completely.
It does not have to be 100 percent dry.
This here is completely dry.
Then I decided to melt some crayons on top of the bottle and let drip down for a cool effect.
Looks pretty spooktacular.
I mod podged a label I had that I bought a pack of at Michaels last year.
I plan on putting a candle in it and I think it will look neat on the coffee table come Halloween time.
Thanks for stopping over today.

This is really creative! When you just got the purple on, I thought it was going to be a tombstone. Then I was suprised with an even better idea. I love your site.
