I have always wanted to try etching glass, and today I did just that! I don’t know why I waited so long! It’s easy, fun and very inexpensive!
I used the Cricut Maker to cut out Premium Permanent Vinyl to use as my stencil. I don’t recommend using removeable vinyl and it doesn’t stick as well and the etching creme can easily seep underneath your design (ask me how I know). You will also want to pick up a bottle of Armour Etch. It will last you forever, because most of it goes right back in the bottle after you use it.
With the holidays right around the corner, I’m always looking for gift ideas for stockings, hostess gifts and small gifts for friends. You could easily make wine glasses, casserole dishes, candy dishes, vases, canisters… whatever fits your gift recipient’s needs. I thought the shot glasses would also be a fun bachelor party gift, or newly engaged couple gift or even a shower gift.
I have included a step by step tutorial for you. It’s really easy! Try it!
