Materials You Will Need

  • Bottles! For this example we have use our 750ml clear wine bottle but any 750ml bottle will do the trick.

  • PVA Glue

  • Tissue paper

  • Black paper or vinyl stickers

  • Paint, paintbrushes and other arts and craft supplies!

  • Bottle cork lights

Instructions For Making Halloween Light Up Bottles

In our example we will be making a spooky Mummy. But as you can see you can make these bottles in to anything with a little imagination. Just find some different coloured tissue paper and get creative!

1. Get one of our 750ml wine bottles or a similar wine bottle you have at home. This is a perfect recycling project!

2. Cover in white tissue paper (or a different colour depending on which spooky creation you are making). Use PVA glue to stick the tissue paper to the bottle.

Make sure you cover the entire bottle in tissue paper.

3. Using either some black paper or vinyl cut out the eyes, mouth etc for your spooky creation. We have used some simple scary eyes for our bottle. Stick the shapes on to the bottle using your PVA glue.

Get creative with your spooky eyes!

4. To give our Mummy more character, rip up some tissue paper and stick around the eyes to make it look like the Mummy's bandages are falling apart!

Add extra tissue paper to add more detail.

5. Dab some black paint over parts of the paper on the bottles to depth to the details. This will make your Mummy look more weathered and realistic.

The great thing about this arts and crafts activity is that you can be endlessly creative. Do you have green tissue paper? Why not make a Witch!

You can make endless different faces and monsters for each bottle. The possibilities are endless. Making this a fantastic rainy day project to do with kids.
