Spells and Potions Halloween Jar Labels


These are super easy to make using any kind of jar – although there’s something about apothecary jars that really adds that “x factor”. (All of these jars were purchased at HomeGoods.) Just fill your jar with “creepy” contents, embellish it with a themed label, and done!

Click here to download jar labels for the following “ingredients”:

  • Zombie Brains = cauliflower + green colored water
  • Snake Venom = rubber snakes (from Party City) + black colored water
  • Bone Dust = white sand
  • Shrunken Heads = mini styrofoam skulls (from Michaels)
  • Eye of Newt = canned Lychee fruit filled with maraschino cherries


Click here to download the following labels:

  • Venomous Spider Legs (black licorice)
  • Bat Droppings (black Sixlets)
  • Earth Worms (green & yellow gummy worms)
  • Magic Toads (gummy frogs)


Click here to download the 4×6 sign (as displayed above in a white $1 Tolsby frame from IKEA).

    I’m really loving the green on these. Adds a touch of spooky elegance to the label.

    Hi, I love these labels and bookmarked them back in October as an idea for my kids vintage mad scientist party this February. Who can I hire to customize the color on these labels for me? There isn’t a link to the designer. So grateful,
    Thank you!

    I love the labels! Quick question, where did you find the frame?

    • jenn s. June 6, 2012 at 12:41 pm

      Hi Kelli –
      That’s the “Tolsby” frame from IKEA – it’s double-sided and only $1! I use them for everything :)

  10. Jennifer August 16, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    Love this idea! Thank you!
    Can I ask where you got the glass canisters?

    What are the fonts you used? They would work perfectly for another project I’m doing!

    • jenn s. August 22, 2012 at 5:37 am

      Hi April –

      The script font is called “Nelly”, the large serif font is “Trajan Pro”, and the small serif font is “Mrs. Eaves Petite Caps” :)

    Hi, I love your labels but I am having difficulty printing them. They always come out 3 different colors. what am I doing wrong???

    • jenn s. September 17, 2012 at 12:23 pm

      Hi Sheila –

      Unfortunately I don’t have an easy answer because it sounds like a technical issue and those vary from printer to printer :0 I know this kind of thing is so frustrating though – sorry :( Do you mean that you’re using just one printer and the same file is coming out different colors each time it prints?

    Hi, I love the labels but can't seem to print them they come out three different colors everytime… Thanks,

    Thank you for generously sharing these Halloween labels! I incorporated them into our witch’s den decor. I think you’ll enjoy seeing them in use!

    I visited here from How About Orage, and printed out the labels. Thank you very much for your sharing. I’m a teacher, and my students complained my classroom is not decorated for Halloween, but this will definately satisfy and impress my eager kids!!! Cool, stylish, unique, and creepy!

    I tried printing these and it always ends up as a ERROR!
