DIY Etched Glasses (Dollar Tree!)

2 Materials
15 Minutes

I just love the look of etched glass. I also love how inexpensive it can be. These jars are awesome for kitchen organization. I use them for flour, candy, and everything in between. This is probably one of my favorite things to give away as a wedding present. One bottle of this etching paste have lasted me through so many projects.

This also works great for glasses and any household glass.

Before we learn how to etch glass, gather supplies.

-Glasses (or Mason jars )( mine are from Dollar Tree)

-Glass etching paste from the craft store

- stickers and tape ( you could also free hand if you're better at painting that I am)

Open the Etching Paste and pour a little out (to easily paint it onto the glass)

This stuff is so inexpensive (I used a coupon at Michaels) & Im still using the same bottle.

Tape off the bottle (if you want a stripe)

Add a letter sticker in the stripe

( you can also buy stencil stickers if you don't want to stripe)

Paint the etching paste on with a sponge or paintbrush. Be careful not to touch any part of the glass that you do not want etched.

Wait the amount of time that it suggested on the bottle, then rinse well.

Remove the tape/sticker and voila!
