Decorate for Halloween with these DIY Glitter Potion Bottles
We’re big fans of Harry Potter. I’ve thrown a Harry Potter birthday party, knit many Gryffindor scarves, and made a Hermione inspired hat.
With all of our wizard themed decor, it was time to make potion bottles! This easy DIY is perfect for Halloween or a Harry Potter party.
Make sure you’re ready for potions class with this fun DIY!

How to Make DIY Potion Bottles
Just like any good wizard, it make take some trial and error to get your potions mixed.
I used disposable cups to mix my potions before pouring them into the glass bottles.
First pour the corn syrup into the cups.
Second sprinkle in the glitter and stir to combine.
Then pour the glittery mixture into the bottles through the funnels.
Some of my potions are a single glitter color
- Liquid Luck – yellow
- Zombie Antidote – green
- Love Potion – red
For some of my other potions I mixed various glitter colors together
- Dragon blood – mostly red with a little bit of yellow
- Unicorn tears – mostly blue with a little purple
- Truth serum – red, yellow, green, blue, and purple all mixed together
Print out some potion labels, (you can use these FREE labels), and then used Mod Podge to attach the labels to the glass bottles.

To make my potion bottles feel like part of my Halloween decor I decided to pair them with a bright no carve pumpkin.
No Carve Leaf Pumpkin Supplies
- Foam pumpkin
- Tissue paper leaves
- Mod Podge
- Foam brush
Using a foam pumpkin makes it perfect for a no carve craft. Use Mod Podge and a foam brush to attach the tissue paper leaves all over your pumpkin. Then all you have to do is let it dry!
My Halloween Potion decorations are complete!
