I've been having a lot of fun with etching lately, it’s so addicting! If you’ve never tried it, this is actually something you can easily do at home. It’s super easy and cheap!

There are so many possibilities of what you can make and these make great gifts. It doesn’t have to be wine glasses, you can etch anything glass… mason jars, beer mugs, trifle bowls, candles, etc… Just follow my DIY etched glass tutorial and sit back and admire the beautiful etched glass that you made!

So let's gather materials

  • Armor Etch cream
  • Glass of your choice – I buy a lot of my wine glasses from the Dollar Tree
  • stencils - picked inexpensive one at Michales
  • robber gloves
  • paint brush

Apply your stencil to the glass really good. Press firmly all around to make sure it is really stuck everywhere . Apply a thick amount of the etch cream. Make sure you do this in a ventilated area, it’s pretty smelly! 

Dip a paintbrush into the cream and dab it onto the design. Make sure there is enough to cover the exposed area but not so much that it drips. Leave it on for about 15-20 minutes to do the work for you!

Then take it to a sink and rinse off the cream with soap and water.

TAA-DAA !! What do you think? Looks good right!

Love to etch! I even have my own wine glass!
