Reinventing Orange Sodas

 We are getting into the home stretch for my Witch's Brew-haha.  Today was beverage day.  I have loved this sweet little witch graphic ever since I first saw it on Graphics Fairy, and knew I would think of something to do with it.  Step  one in reinventing soda bottles was to find one that had glued on labels, rather than painted on labels.

I am still playing with my layout for my table at the big event, but here is one idea.

As you can see I dressed my Parlor Mannequin up as a witch, since I have sold all of my paper mache mannequins, and didn't have time to make another before the party.

I spray painted a couple of old tumbler caddies, that I had on hand, and really like how they look with the bottled sodas.
Below are the original GF witch postcard, and then my soda label after a session in 'paint'.   I dumbed down the blue, a lot, so that the label would better match my color scheme for the party, as you can see.  Thanks for coming by to take a peek!

I am linking up to the Home Sweet Home Friday Party, come by and see.  My Steampunk'n from last week was even featured!!
