DIY Cookies for Santa Etched Glass Plate

Surprise a special little one in your life with a gift before Christmas with this etched glass Cookies for Santa plate. It's easy with a clear glass plate for just $1, and etchall®! DIY tutorial included.
Materials:


Glass plate (I have found these at "dollar stores" and at the local big box chain department store for about $1!)


etchall® - Etching Cream, Designer Tip Kit (www.etchall.com)


DecoArt® - Americana® Gloss Enamels® Re-Usable Stick On Alphabet Stencils, Glass Paint Markers™ - Red, White,Gold, Silver, Citron (www.decoart.com)


Darice® Santa and trees brass stencils (www.darice.com)


Scissors, duct tape, paper towels


Instructions:


1. Trimming around letters as needed, on inside/front of plate spell out “COOKIES FOR SANTA” along top curved edge. (As I only had 1 alphabet set, I had to etch the first set of letters, then go back and etch my “o” in FOR, etc….)


2. Use duct tape to hold brass Santa stencil in center of plate. Fill designer tip kit bottle with etchall® creme, apply cream over letter stencils, then fill in brass stencil, lift and remove stencil, carefully removing any creme that may have bled beneath stencil. Let set 15 minutes, then rinse to remove creme (etchall® creme is re-usable, and can be returned to the jar for use another time - but for this small amount, I chose to just remove the cream while washing instead.)


3. Use tape to hold brass tree stencil in place next to Santa image, apply creme, lift to remove stencil, carefully removing any creme that may have bled beneath stencil. Let set 15 minutes, then rinse to remove creme. Repeat for additional trees. Wash plate thoroughly and let dry.


4. Use DecoArt® paint markers to add dots around Santa, star, and trees to highlight etched areas. Also add dot holly sprigs around words as desired. Follow manufacturer instructions to "set" marker and make washable.
