Add food coloring to reach the desired potion color.

Add glitter, small beads, confetti, etc., taking care not to overfill.

Author's Note: At most the objects you add should not
take up more than ½ the amount of the liquid in the tube.

Using the eyedropper, carefully add the oil until the tube is filled to the top, making certain that there are no air bubbles caught in the tube.

Apply glue to the inside of the cap, screw the cap onto the top of the tube, and allow to dry.

Pass the ribbon, cord, or chain through the hanger top to finish it off.

TFDelta's tutorial was submitted for The Leaky Cauldron Harry Potter Crafts' July 2010 Save Galleons! Why Buy It When You Can CRAFT It? Contest, and was posted with permission.

Please note that the patterns and tutorials you find here have been designed by Harry Potter fans all over the Internet. The authors alone hold the copyrights and licenses to these patterns and tutorials, which means you CANNOT use their patterns to make something that you will sell to others afterward. You can use them to make things for yourself. You can make some for your friends and ask them to pay for supplies. You CANNOT, however, ask them to pay you to do it as though you had created this pattern by yourself, or try to sell you crafts to a local store.

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!
