How to make a spooky Halloween recycled bottle craft

Hey there!

Today, I am sharing how to make a spooky Halloween recycled bottle craft.

if you are a regular here you KNOW, Halloween is my favorite.  

Actually, September, and October are my favorite months of the year.

I love to decorate per season, but Fall and Halloween hands down have it all over the rest of the year.

My friend gave me an empty Jack Daniels bottle thinking I could craft with it.

Well of course I can.  I don’t drink the stuff so there would be no empty bottles around my house of that stuff.

I think I drank it once, and let’s just say, it wasn’t a pretty experience.

So, out came some simple craft supplies.

First I painted the bottle with my gesso.

I lightly pat the bottle as you can see closely here with my artist brush so I get somewhat of a texture.

I then paint on the rit dye after letting the gesso, ALMOST dry completely.

It does not have to be 100 percent dry.

This here is completely dry.

Then I decided to melt some crayons on top of the bottle and let drip down for a cool effect.
