Eat Drink and be Scary!

Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday, so I tend to go a little over the top. This year I wanted to incorporate recycled bottles into my décor, and I came up with 3 easy ways to repurpose wine bottles for Halloween:

Celebrate the night of fright with great wine and sinister spirits! First, for a deranged dinner party, re-label your wine bottles with creepy labels. I printed with these silhouette labels on my home computer and carefully covered up the existing labels. There are so many different styles, so be creative!  Toxic Tonics, Witches Brews, Poisonous Potions. I prefer the creepy crawlies that come out this time of year like Crows, Bats, and Scorpions.

For those of you who have more empty bottles than full, recycle them into sinister candle holders. Simply spray paint the clear bottles with a matte black, and place black taper candles in them. You can mix in empty black glass bottles with the labels removed to add contrast. Get the kids involved by spraying the bottles black and giving them chalk to draw scary eyes on them!

For a little more haunt, fill your empty bottles with tonic water, liquid laundry detergent or highlighter ink and shine a black light on the bottles for a glowing effect. Add some gummy worms or spiders to create scary specimen bottles!

These three simple ideas are perfect ways to celebrate Halloween while recycling at the same time!
