Conductive copper tape really shines when you take it out of the home-improvement aisle. The metallic find, originally intended for electrical jobs, comes in a wealth of different widths. Grab a variety, and give glass bottles, tumblers, and vases these graphic patterns: Repeat the same tape for neat rings, combine different sizes, or color-block using an extra-thick band.
Coil copper tape around your vessel to measure, cut to fit, and remove the backing.
Make ends meet, and stick the landing. (Note: For even spacing, wrap peeled-off backing around your glass to mark the distance between tape stripes. Here, we doubled it for an airier look.)
