Day 8 of 31 Day Spooktacular- Bottle Specimens

Has anyone read the October issue of Country Living? If so, this image will be familiar.

Although this concept is great year-round, I think it's especially fun during Halloween! 

To recreate my own, I took a few of my 10 cent garage-sale bottles and gave them a quick coat of ivory spray paint. 


I then visited Graphics Fairy and picked out a few of my favorites...are these not the cutest?! 

After resizing the graphics to fit my bottles, I printed and cut them out. When the paint was dry, I used spray adhesive to attach the graphics to the bottle.

Do you like the graphics I used?
Visit Graphics Fairy Here to get the same ones :) 

Also, check out Nan's version from You Could Make That- she has a wonderful tutorial and displays hers beautifully!

I'd love for you to follow along for the 31 Day Spooktacular
