Vintage Hair Tonic Bottles Altered Into Halloween Apothecary Jars
My husband snagged about 16 hair tonic bottles from a flea market on 8.16.14. Only six had their original labels and stoppers. The other ten had a great shape, but really no value. Just in time for Halloween. Last year I altered about 100 bottles, so I thought ten should be a snap. The only thing...some of them were discolored on the inside. So, what about my go-to flat black spraypaint?
Last year I used free printable apothecary labels off the internet. It was kind of a pain cutting and attaching.
I found corks and some great adhesive backed apothecary labels at Michael's. The labels were transparent, so the flat black paint wouldn't work.
I tried spraypaint that makes glass look frosted. Better...
Maybe some gray spraypaint over top. Nice, but kind of flat color. How about a light spray of flat black paint on three sides to age them up a bit. Bingo.
