Tinker-yourself-wine-bottle-etiquette

Step 1 – So that you can make interesting bottle labels for your Halloween bar, you can download and print samples online. These will turn the ordinary wine bottles into scary drinks. The labels can be changed, so you can develop your own personal design. Use glue to attach the new labels to the bottles.

step 2 – For maximum effect, attach the white fabric to your Halloween bar as shown in the photo. Glue it on the corners, but leave enough free space so that you can easily reach the lower shelf.

step 3 – Buy or make a large black spider and attach it to the fabric. If you want you can arrange several smaller spiders around the big one.

Step 4 – To make it look more authentic, you can also grind fake blood on the shelves. Oatmeal on the blood will look like skin and human parts.

Step 5– Wrong hand on the trolley gives the bar a ghostly effect.

Step 6 – Arrange the wine bottles and glasses. A black candle can light up the bar – and that’s it! Someone want a drink?

Happy Halloween.
