This year for Halloween, I knew I wanted to create a simple and spooky tablescape. Nothing says spooky like jars of eyeballs, brains, and poison. As I mentioned in my previous Halloween posts – modern black pumpkins and bat wall, Target Dollar Spot had all the Halloween goodies this year.
I spotted these apothecary jars and they had the perfect labels! However, there were only four or five different size bottles and I would need more for my table. Each jar was $3 and then I found some plain glass jars too for $5 to DIY the rest of the apothecary jars.

DIY Halloween Apothecary Jars Supplies:
- glass jars, I got mine at Target but these will work too
- wine or glass soda bottles
- black spray paint
- labels, I used these from Etsy
- glue or washi tape
First, I spray painted the wine bottles and let them dry overnight. After downloading the printables from Etsy, I printed them and cut them out. Using the glue, I glued them on to the bottles. Pretty easy right? 😉
Then using the same labels, I used the washi tape (mine is from the Target Dollar Spot) to attach them to the clear glass bottles. I decided to do this, just in case I wanted to use these bottles later for a different project. I also found some glass beakers at Michaels and thought they would be fun.
I used a mirrored tray and every single flameless candle I could find in our home to set the table. I arranged everything until it looked right, keeping all the angles visible from each seat.
Next year, I’ll definitely need to find some spooky Halloween dishes, spider webs, and creepy eyeballs to finish it off but this was a super simple and quick DIY that anyone can do for Halloween!
