Apothecary jars and bottles, especially around Halloween, always seem to conjour up creepy 18th century pharmacists in the back concocting their potions, liniments and elixers. So to get into the spirit of Halloween, I created this wicked and spooktacular centerpiece with my custom Apothecary printables.

I used my own vintage collection of bottles but you can use bottles and jars you have in your kitchen or bathroom - try to find all sorts of heights and shapes for a more dramatic effect. You could also purchase several kinds of bottles online. Below is a list of sites for bottles and the supplies you’ll need.

• Apothecary bottles and jars
• Printable Halloween labels
• Mirror tray or tile
• Halloween polyester webbing or cotton balls
• Halloween blood
• Decorative paper bats
• Facci Designs Needle felted mice (optional)
I placed the netting on the table and secured part of it to the wall behind the centerpiece. I grouped the bottles on a mirror to create a ghoulish glow when the candles are lit. I added some moss and Halloween Polyester Cobwebs I purchased but you can make your own, with cotton balls or even a glue gun! (google it).
Please note: when using real candles, please be cautious of the flame and keep the webbing away from the lit candles.
