Step 1: Materials
I found a sheet of 6 at the local dollar store.
These are shiny silver foil, and sticky on the back. (if your local Dollar Tree doesn't have them, try a craft store or anywhere scrapbooking supplies are sold)
Other supplies needed:
Matte black spray paint
Brown/rust spray paint (optional)
Bottles / Jars with labels removed. Flat fronted will work better than rounded, so think square bottles rather than cylindrical. (either recycled, or if you want to label liquor bottle with the liquor still in them, just peel off the front label.)
...or whatever else you'd like to stick your labels to!
Step 2: Prepare your labels and apply
Spray with a heavier coat of black paint, making sure the black gets in the cracks. Then wipe the high parts off with a paper towel while still wet to reveal some of the silver. Play around with this, it's somewhat trial and error, until you get the look you want.
When you have a good look, let dry thoroughly, then apply to a flat spot on your bottles.
If you don't have a flat spot on some of your bottles, consider making a chain with a tag to go around the bottle's neck (a homemade version of something like this: decanter/bottle label), and apply to that instead. This is a nice touch as you can then remove and reuse easily.
