Craft Paint

To color your tiny potion bottles follow the steps I used to color my Pretend Magic Potions. You’ll only need craft paint to create any color bottle you want.

Tear small labels from your card stock paper to make it look aged. Add your text with a permanent marker.  I found I was limited in the words I could add to the label by the miniature size of the label. I’d recommend taking time to brainstorm the text you’d like to add to each label.

Use the decoupage glue to attach the label to the mini bottle. I used a rubber band to hold the label in place on the curved bottle surface until it dried.

It took about 5 minutes to make all four mini magic potion bottles (plus drying time).  Just imagine the hours and hours of imaginative play that these tiny potion bottles will foster. They’re also the perfect addition to magical, mystical decor.

These really are tiny magic potion bottles. Look at them compared to a penny. 

Add a couple of clear marbles and pretty beads to add to the mystical magical feel. Make a smaller version of my DIY Dungeons and Dragons Drawstring Bag to hold the mini magic potion bottles and other pretties.
