Potion Elixer GarlandI’m finally getting a little itchy for the Halloween season!  Time to pull out the creepy decor! I made this potion garland banner yesterday for a Spooky Cocktail Table Scene for a Halloween Party! Just get some of those creepy potion bottle labels, craft paper and some beads and whip one up, here’s how..

Potion Garland Banner


  • Potion bottle labels
  • Craft cardstock paper: Wicked Merchant Malvado “My Mind’s Eye” cardstock paper pad (Michaels)
  • 2 sheets of black and white Houndstooth paper
  • Fabric covered plaid beads (Micheals)
  • Black embroidery string
  • Silhouette CAMEO
  • Scissors or paper cutter
  • Hot glue w/gun and a large embroidery needle


I made my own patterns to cut the banner on my Silhouette. If you do not have a Silhouette you can cut out a banner pattern with scissors or a paper cutter and your cardstock. Mine were two large panels, two medium panels and three small panels.

Potion Bottle Labels

Silhouette cuts strips Halloween Banner

elixer garlandNext cut one inch wide strips of the Hounds-tooth paper fold them back and forth in a fan like pattern. Hot glue the two strips together at the ends for the large panels. Lay them flat and hot glue them to the banner panel. Stretch them out to fit the size of your potion label while you glue.

I used two strips for the large banner panels and one strip for the 3 small panels. Glue the ends together and repeat steps above. Glue your labels on top of the fans. 

Add your beads to the embroidery string using a needle. Hot glue them into place by putting a dot of glue on the string and place the bead over it. Turn your banners over and hot glue them to the string. Take the rest of your beads and add a string, tying a  knot at one end and gluing the other end of the string to the tip if each banner panel. And that’s it!

I hoped you liked this unique Halloween Party Cocktail Table Poison Banner! I’d love to see your version if you try these out!
