These are some that I have posted for sale on my Etsy site. I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a mold so I could experiment making some different ones. It's time consuming but so much fun because the possibilities are endless. Check back to see more.

So I got out some wire and some beads to wrap around the base of the glass tops.
The beads I used are glass beads from a broken vintage necklace.
I wrapped the wire, making sure it was secure and added beads at intervals as I wrapped the wire up into a spiral ending with a little loop.

When I was satisfied with the carving I used a polymer clear coat called Sculpt and Coat to seal the foam. When dry I used a light gray paint as the base coat and a darker gray that I sponged on after the base coat dried. This gives the appearance of stone and helped to accent the letters.
Here is the finished BEWARE sign.

These books will look good when added to my witches cabinet with my other Halloween props.

The other day I found these labels at the Dollar Store. There was 8 labels in a package for $1.00. I already had some old bottles that I knew would be perfect for this project.
Here is how they turned out. The EMBALMING JUICE is my favorite spooky bottle. This large amber bottle is 13" tall, it's one that I already had and didn't know what to do with it.
And the ZOMBIE VIRUS is a vintage liquor bottle that was found in the basement of our building. These spooky bottles will be a nice addition to this years Halloween decorations.
I went and checked my email after I was done with my bottles and there was an email from my sister. She sent me this link to some free Halloween labels that you can print out and use. Some of them are very cool, so I guess I'm making some more Halloween bottles. I've got to wonder, how did she know that's what I was doing?
The next thing I'm working on is my witches potion and spell books. I'll put pictures up when I'm done.
