Halloween is my jam y’all. I love to decorate with simple fun Halloween decor ideas and this was a fun one! I made the cutest little Halloween labels with my Wagner heat gun and some embossing powder. It really gives a special touch to labels. I’m gonna need you to do me a huge favor next wee! Me and four other bloggers all created a Halloween idea with our heat guns and Wagner is holding a contest to see which project y’all like best! I’ll let you know when voting starts! Until then, here is the project.
I gathered some fun glass jars I got from the dollar store and decided to make a little witch’s stash of potion ingredients for a cute centerpiece on our breakfast table. Each jar got its own label for Halloween and stuffed with some dollar store finds.
How to Make and Embossed Label:
- Cut out paper labels, I used scrapbook paper for a cute backdrop.
- With and embossing pen write out the label you want to use. (you can also use a stamp and ink pad for embossing)
- While the ink is still wet sprinkle with embossing powder. You may need to go word by word if you are writing a bunch.
- Shake off excess powder back into the jar. (unless you are like me and my mom and accidentally spill the jar everywhere!!)
- You can also draw lines and decorate your label then dip the paper into the embossing powder. (sometimes accidents work out nice! )
- Using your Wagner heat gun hold it above your powdered drawings and heat until the embossing powder starts to melt together and raise. It only takes 15 to 20 seconds or so.
I tied on the labels with raffia from the dollar store and some left over ribbon I had! You can come up with all kinds of fun jar label ideas for Halloween. I used wit & wisdom for a jar full of mini skulls, Invisible ink on an empty jar (I’m not gonna lie, I thought that one was pretty genius! Clearly Oliver was as excited as me.) and Eye of Newt for some little bug friends. Here are some other ideas you could try.

What other ideas can you think of? I am thinking I will make some more of these as I move into the Halloween season. I love to hear your ideas! This project will be in a Wagner Halloween contest, so I will let you know when voting starts! Pin away friend.
