Hey, you get to dress up for Halloween. Your kids, your pets, your house—they all get dressed up for Halloween. What if that Kräftig in your fridge feels left out? What if it just wants to dress up, too? Well, let your beer bottles get in on the spooky fun with this easy 5-step DIY decoration project!
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
- Kräftig 6-Pack (Or a 12-Pack if you’re with some thirsty friends)
- Spray Paint
- Black, White, Orange, Green
- Tape (Masking or Paint)
- Permanent Marker
- Newspaper (Don’t want to make a mess!)
- Baking Soda
- Glue Gun and Hot Glue Sticks (Optional)
- Googly Eyes (Optional)
Step 2: Ditch Those Labels
Fill up your sink with warm water and add 5-10 tablespoons of baking soda. Stir up the water before adding the bottles. Let the bottles soak for approximately 30 minutes and the labels should peel right off!
Step 3: Spray Bottles with Base Coat
Lay down your newspaper and pick up a can of paint. We chose black. Be sure to spray around 12 inches away from the bottle so the paint doesn’t run! Once you’ve got a nice base layer, let the paint dry for about an hour.
Step 4: Draw Faces
Use your marker to draw eyes, noses, and mouths on the tape. Cut each shape out with scissors and place them on your bottles.
Step 5: Spray Over the Tape
Spray each bottle with the color of your choosing. Again, be sure to spray approximately 12 inches away from the bottle. We chose to make a pumpkin with orange paint, a ghost with white paint, and Frankenstein with green paint. Let each bottle dry for another hour before removing the tape.
If you’re looking to crank up the spooky factor, you can add a Creatures in the Night bottle to the mix! Just paint your bottle black (as in Step 3), heat up your glue gun, and glue on some googly eyes.
Get kräfty this Halloween and make your Kräftig bottles look creepy! Easy to make, and giving you a perfectly valid excuse to drink before decorating, these DIY spooky bottles are sure to bring some fun to your holiday.
