Hey Potter Fans! I am SOOOO excited for this project! I have wanted Halloween apothecary bottles for a couple of years, but never got around to making them. But this year, I am decorating my house like Hogwarts for Halloween, so I wanted the potions from the books! Today I have a FREE set of Harry Potter Printable Potion Bottle Labels for you!

Here’s a fun preview of this project!


I got my bottles at Hobby Lobby and they were 50% off! However you can easily find these bottles at thrift stores and in your pantry. Really any cool shaped glass bottles work! Then you can order a cork set, that comes with a variety of sizes, off Amazon for pretty affordable.

I also really like these bottles off Amazon:


A major part of making your Harry Potter Potion Bottles look cool is making sure you distress the glass to get the old and spooky look. If you want to learn how I distressed the glass, check out my post with this tutorial for aging glass jars! I give you 3 different techniques that are super simple!

3 bottles distressed to look old.


After the bottles were ready, I printed my labels on cardstock and cut them out using scissors. Next distress the edges of the labels using distress ink. I then used an even layer of modge podge on the back of the label and pushed it onto the front of bottle. Continue to hold the label down for a few minutes and kept checking to make sure that the label had not bubbled up. If a bubble formed I just gently pressed it out with my fingers. After letting it sit for about 10 minutes I put a thin layer of modge podge over the front of the label to make it more durable. Don’t worry if you get a little modge podge on the bottle around the label – it dries clear!

Old bottles distressed to look like potion bottles on a platter with a cotton wreath and old books.


I filled them with whatever I had laying around the house. You’d be surprised what items look cool:

  • Hair Gel
  • Vinegar
  • Sand
  • Sugar
  • Colored water
  • Rice
  • Wine
  • Water Beads
  • Spider Webs
  • Molasses
  • Oatmeal
  • Coffee
