Blood is a Halloween favorite so I decided to add some to my collection. I just finished the jar for it.  

 
I started with twine and this beat jar I got for half off at the Hobby Lobby. I wrapped the twine around the neck of the jar and tacky glued it to its self in the back. I cut the little skull and cross bones off of a cheep dollar store necklace and glued them on the front. I made the gory tag with craft paper. I painted food coloring on for the blood and distressed it with Tim Holtz walnut distress dauber. 

Closer to October, I will fill the bottle with corn syrup and red food coloring. The jar has a rubber stopper which I like for liquids because it won’t spill on the piano I keep my apothecary on. 

  
Here it is! 

   
 
Happy Haunting!
