DIY// Etching Glass

My sister and a friend made beautiful pieces of etched glass for Christmas gifts and when she taught me how, I was seriously surprised at how easy it is. Guys, this is totally a go-to for gift making!

To start, you’ll need a piece of glass (a pitcher, a drinking glass, etc.), a paint brush, scrapbooking stickers, and etching cream (you can grab this at a craft store). I picked up these glass votives at Goodwill.


Place your sticker on the glass. You want to make sure it’s a scrapbook sticker, because regular stickers won’t stick as well. You can also use painter’s tape to make patterns/stripes/etc.

2etchWhen it dries (just a few minutes), remove the sticker and rinse the etching cream off, using the brush to make sure it’s off well. And, that’s all!
