I recently has an inquiry about how I built this portable moaning myrtle sink basin. This unit was built with cardboard, decorative wood trim from craft store, wood dowels, shoelaces, plastic cut able mirror and many layers of craft paint. It also houses a hidden surprise. Much like the real sink basin.
Tip: Use the backside of the booze bottles. Recycle your existing food/beverage bottles and use homemade or my potion labels. A bag of assorted corks and a bit of ribbon and twine will look authentic. I used a recycled Starbucks frap bottle for the enchanted sips. I used the original bottle for the cinnamon broom sticks. I got a few other bottles from the dollar store and craft store.

I used a lot of different art media to create this look. I used a bit of everything. So have a closer look at the picture with the crafting supplies. Use whatever you have on hand. Use your favorite crafting products. Also, don't be afraid to make and cut your own image. I hand cut this cauldron out of scrapbook paper. I sanded the edges to make it look distressed. I wanted the cauldron to be big, so I had to make it myself to get the size I wanted.

I found this vintage spice cabinet at Salvation Army for $10. It included all the spice bottles. All I had to do was replace the glass front and make custom Harry Potter potion labels. Here are some of the tools and supplies u will need. My labels are free if u like them. It took 8hrs. To design and create the potion labels. All together this project took two days. If u use my labels, it should only take u one day.
Remove unwanted glass front. Here's how I did it. It was fast and easy. I took the cabinet outside and laid it in the grass next to the trash can. Slide the cabinet door in a paper bag. Give the bag one good wack with the hammer. Carefully shake the glass out while it is still in bag. Stuff crumpled newspaper into bag. Place bag in trash.
OPTIONAL. If u are into multimedia u can have some fun with the labels. Here's what I did. With assorted stains, I flicked drops of 'spilled potion' onto the labels and scrolls. I rubbed distress ink here and here with blotter. I repeated this process with galaxy gold ink. I sprayed shimmer spray into papers. I added a bit of color to a few labels with distress markers then water colored them.
