Trash 2 Treasure Tuesday - Halloween Edition

It's Tueday! You know what that means... Trash 2 Treasure day over at Reinvented and DIY day at A Soft Place to land. I am so sad I missed last week because I wanted to share this project then... but as I was getting around to it... my power went out! :( So I bring it to you this week.

I saw these on The Idea Room Blog in one of her posts here. Oh how fun! So I set out to create my own. I found these jars at Ben Franklin Craft store. I thought they would be so cute with some of these labels... but I still had to decide what to put in them. I got the eyeball candies in the small one from the dollar store but still had the other two. I knew I wanted to use labels from here but which ones?

That's when I came across the werewolf one and it came to me...brush my dog! hehe so I brushed him and put his hair inside. Then printed the label on address labels and stuck in on! :) I love it!

This one is just water with food coloring! SUPER SIMPLE!

Now if I really was going trash to treasure I would have just used empty glass jars from food stuff and painted the lids black... but we don't use a lot of jars around here so they weren't readily available.

So head over to Love Manor - get your labels - and start making some potions!!!



What a cute project. I love it!

What a cute idea! I love the dog hair, we've got plenty of that around here. Never thought to use it to decorate! :)


Cute!! I used the same labels. I never thought of using dog hair--genius. Check mine out too~


They look great. The dog hair was a good thought. My hubby would be sneezing his head off. haha! Thanks for sharing
