While trying to come up with some new decorating ideas for Halloween this year, I was inspired by the idea of magic potions that wizards and witches use in their spells. Any good potion is made up of some fantastical ingredients, so I thought I’d made some fun labels that celebrate those ingredients in style. I decided to go with a look that was based on vintage apothecary labels. And here they are, in a helpful download-and-print format for ya!

I printed a few copies of the labels onto sheets of sticker paper. To get various sizes of labels, I used my printer options to increase and decrease the scale when printing. Then I wandered around my house and found a bunch of bottles and vials to use.
Then all I had to do was cut the labels out and stick them onto the bottles. So little effort for such a big impact, don’t you think?
It was pretty fun to find things to fill the bottles with, too. Can you guess what the “eye of newt” is? It’s some of the silica gel I use to dehydrate flowers. And that “witch’s blood” is a bottle of maple syrup I had in the pantry. I just soaked it in water to remove the existing label and added a new one. I love it!
Soaking that label gave me another fun idea for how to use labels, particularly the ones for liquid ingredients. I grabbed a few of My Honey’s beers from the fridge and replaced the labels with my own. What a funky and cool addition these custom bottle labels would be to a grown-up Halloween party!
