Are you having a grownup Halloween party? ‘Cuz if you are, you neeeeeed these! Come on, how super cool would you feel if you greeted your guests at the door with a shot glass in the form of a test tube with some delicious, creepy spirits inside? Bonus points if use use dry ice because duh. Or just stack ’em up in their neat little test tube holders and pass them around on a tray as people mix and mingle. These are so fun!
If you want to make a set of your own, read on! I love the glass vial test tubes in this kit, and it’s perfect because once Halloween is over you can repurpose them to be little vases or something else fun. They’re just too cool. They’d be perfect throughout the fall and winter as little mini bouquet holders for place cards at your holiday tables. I can picture them all lined up in a row with a single pretty bloom in each test tube. Let’s make them!
DIY Test Tube Shot Glass Holders for Halloween
- glass vials
- 1 3/4″ wood cubes
- washi tape
- black craft paint
- drill and 5/8″ drill bit
Make Time: 2 Hours
Step 1: Use a 5/8 inch drill bit to drill a hole halfway through the wood block. Be sure that you drill directly into the center of the top of the cube, and drill directly downward (not at an angle).
Step 2: Sand the outer edge of the drilled hole to smooth it out.
Step 3: Use a piece of washi tape to mask off the top half of one side of the cube at an angle. Paint the unmasked portion of the bottom of the cube.
