Potion Jar Centerpieces

Potions is one of the most popular classes at Hogwarts, so make sure you have an ample supply of Gillyweed and Hippogriff Gizzards on hand!

What you'll need: Glass jars in different sizes, labels for jars, food coloring, water and a variety of odd-looking substances to serve as "magical" ingredients

Directions: Fill the jars with different substances and label them according to the potions and ingredients mentioned in the Harry Potter movies. The more creepy and gross-sounding the better! For example:

• Prunes = Dried Beetles
• Weeds in green water = Gillyweed
• Maple syrup = Truth Serum
• Purple water with loose tea leaves = Dream Fluid
• Black lentils = Bats Eyes
• Smoked oysters = Hippogriff Gizzards
• Dirt + water = Hollow Stump Soil
• Cocktail onions = Blind Cat Eyes
• Spaghetti with red sauce = Blood Worms
