136/366: Pharmacy Party Part 3
I went back and forth on these, not really feeling like I needed anything, but wanting something.
This was my first idea way back. I asked some friends to start collecting the pill bottles, not quite knowing how the execution would go.
Then, the Thursday night before the party, I decided to glue the bottles to a strip of wood and use medicinal herbs to play with the mortar and pestle theme I had going.
A quick coat of acrylic paint on a couple strips of wood in a bright blue and green. After soaking the bottles to get the labels off, I glued the bottles to the wooden strips.
I added some caps and other medicine bottles I had.
Mischler's Florist and Greenhouses and picked up a great selection of herbs.
My favorite was mint...it held it's shape in water and didn't wilt like the sage did. I also cut a weed from the backyard and added that to the bottles.
I am really happy I went ahead with these.
