Last week I shared how to make Apothecary Jars from old bottles and I promised you that there would be a tutorial on how to make poison labels soon. Well today is the day! These poison labels are so super easy to make, and you can whip them up in minutes.
Before we get started, let me just say that for these exact labels you will need a Royale membership from PicMonkey. A Royale membership allows you to use their premium texts, graphics and textures to create even more awesome! With that being said, you can absolutely create similar labels without the Royale membership, the steps will just be slightly different.

How to Make Poison Labels in PicMonkey
Start by going to PicMonkey, and select the Design tab. It will automatically open up to a screen that looks like the one below.
- Select the “transparent canvas” check box.
- Once selected the white canvas will turn to a gray and white checkered pattern.
- Click on the themes tab, which will be the very last tab on the side. The image changes with each season, right now it may be a pumpkin or a cat. Once you’ve clicked on the themes tab, select the “witches” theme.
- Select “potion labels” and choose your favorite label
- The label will automatically display with a black background and white outlines. To change this, in the Overlay pop-up box select color 1 and click the “transparent” check box. Then select black for color 2 (or your color of choice)
- Next, if you wish to apply an aged texture to the background, select the “antiquated” texture. Then in the Paint box that pops up, click the “Reverse effect” box, to brush on the texture. This step takes the most time, but I love the look of the texture on the labels
- Finally, choose text and embellishments. I used the fonts under the witches theme as well as others from the text tab. For embellishments I used the “magical creatures” as well as “flourishes” under the graphics tab. Have fun with it! I love playing around with all of the graphics and fonts on PicMonkey* to create something unique.
Be sure to save each label as a .png file to keep the background transparent. After you have created all of the poison labels, insert them into a word document to print.
