DIY: Stamped Metal Decanter Tags | 12 Months of Martha

I’ve always loved the look of bars with fancy liquor decanters adorned with pretty tags naming what liquors they contain. They always remind me of scenes in TV shows and movies where someone grabs a bottle and aggressively pours a shot of some sort of brown liquor into a glass. Then they either shoot it down or just sort of roll it around in their hands while looking very pensive. It’s very dramatic, and I’m all about drama. It’s also super classy and vintage and I’m all about that too. What I’m trying to say is I like decanters with tags and I wanted to add some of that flair to my bar at home.DIY Stamped Metal Decanter Tags #12MonthsofMartha
I always see decanter tags at flea markets, but I never seem to snatch them up. Probably because they’re either too expensive or they’re not the right style. Recently I added some shelves and revamped my bar, so I picked up some new liquor decanters and decided to DIY some decanter tags using my new Martha Stewart Crafts metalworking tools.

Here’s all you have to do. It’s super simple and it took me less than 20 minutes.

Tools I Used-

Martha Stewart Crafts Metalworking Metallic Sheets
Martha Stewart Crafts Metalworking Alphabets Stamp Kit
Martha Stewart Crafts Metalworking Tool Kit
Martha Stewart Crafts Metalworking Awl

All you have to do is just cut a piece of metal to your desired dimensions and shape. I did a simple rectangle shape. I wanted my piece to be a little thicker, so I simply cut it to twice my desired height. That way I could fold it over and the metal would be doubled for more heft.
