DIY Magic Potion Bottles

Magic Potion Bottles for Halloween | Evermine Blog | www.evermine.com
Halloween is my favorite time of year. There are so many ways to get creative and make something spooky and fun. I decided to try making my own ‘lava lamps,’ but instead label them as magic potion for Halloween!

If you’ve never tried making a lava lamp before, it’s very easy and requires only a few ingredients. This would be a great project to make or give to your kids and teach them about how water and oil do not mix!

  2. The first step is to use a funnel to fill your bottle ¾ way full with vegetable oil. Then fill it the rest of the way up with water, leaving about an inch of room at the top.
