Glass jars are great resources for adding a classy touch to handmade gifts. This holiday season, elevate the presentation of your presents by etching a fun design or personal phrase onto the glass surface. Or consider adding a little pizzazz to your standard drinking glasses for your next holiday soiree. The process is simple and sure to impress!
- Using alphabet stickers, spell out the phrase you would like etched onto your glass. Remove the backs of the stickers, and adhere to the jar.
- Create a rectangle border around the phrase with painter’s tape, making sure to keep even spacing around the edges of the words. Make sure that the tape creates a tight seal so that the etching cream does not leak through.
- Using the paintbrush, carefully apply the etching cream in a thick layer onto the taped-off rectangle area and alphabet stickers. Allow the cream to sit on the glass for at least 60 seconds before rinsing it off in the sink with warm water.
- Once all the cream has been washed away, remove the tape and the stickers to reveal the etched message!
