Spooky Display

Hi Everyone!
I have been in full-on Fall mode in my Craft Room lateley.  Yesterday, I made this Halloween display.  This little shelf is in my dining room, and usually houses a cozy collection of mini pitchers and creamers, as well as the glass bottle you see here.  My family's usual Halloween decorations are more cutesy than creepy, but this year, I decided to take a turn toward the dark side for a more sophisticated display. 
The two potions bottles on the top of the shelf , and the label on the glass bottle were made using SVG Cuts Toil and Trouble set. I love these "bottles".  I almost can't believe that they are made from paper, even though I cut them out and assembled them! I made some vintage labels from online images, and as usual inked everything up with Distress Inks, even the skulls that I found at Target and the Dollar Tree. 
The background behind the tall glass bottle is the front page of the Daily Prophet, from the Harry Potter movies.  I used double sided tape to attach the spider web to the middle of the shelf, in front of a graveyard background, which is an online photo that I altered in PSE.  I printed the skeleton on acetate, gave it a light spray of adhesive and stuck it in the web.  The  "creepy fabric", and the spider web are also from the dollar store.  The spiders were packaged with the webbing.
