Fabulous Friday – Etched Wine Glasses

Today is Fabulous Friday! I have had such a blast posting all sorts of goodies for Little Ladybug week! I have chosen to share a set of white wine glasses with you today. No, they don’t exactly go with our Little Ladybug theme… but I just love these! These wine glasses can be found on my Etsy shop.

Materials Needed:
  • Wine glass
  • Stencil of choice (at the bottom, you will find a quick tutorial on how I use my Cricut to create my stencil!)
  • Armour Etch
  • Sponge Brush
  • Access to a Sink

First thing is you are going to want to make sure that your wine glasses are very clean before etching. After washing your glassware, take a little glass cleaner and clean the portion that you want to etch on. This guarantees an extra clean surface.

Next, secure your stencil to the clean area of the glass. I have heard that masking tape is great for this. (Check down at the bottom of the page for a quick tutorial about using a Cricut to do this)

After your stencil is taped onto your glass, you will apply Armour Etch. This can be found at most craft stores. I like to apply Armour Etch with a sponge brush, because they are very cheap and disposable. You can find these at any store that sells crafts, I like to purchase mine from Wal-Mart. You will then dip the sponge brush into the Armour Etch and apply a good thick layer.

Let the etching cream sit for about 10 minutes. After this period is up, simply wash off the Armour etch and then remove the stencil. Make sure after the stencil is removed, to continue rubbing off excess etching cream. Simply towel dry! To make multiple glasses, just repeat these steps!

Quick Tutorial for Cricut:

Materials
Instead of a “Stencil” you will need:
  • Cricut Vinyl
  • Cricut Transfer Tape
  • Cricut
  • For this project, I used the “Home Accents” Cartridge
Directions:
  • Simply load your vinyl onto the Cricut cutting pad.
  • Choose your image and size
  • Cut
BEFORE REMOVING THE VINYL FROM THE CUTTING MAT:
  • Remove the part of the vinyl that you do not want on your glass
  • Place your transfer tape onto your vinyl
  • Remove from cutting mat
  • Trim around the edges (Leave about 1/2 inch around all of the sides)
  • Remove backing

This is now your stencil. You will not need any tape, because the vinyl is already sticky on the back! :) Enjoy!

You can also use this same technique to etch on any type of glass. This craft makes the perfect gift! I hope you enjoyed Fabulous Friday! Make sure you stop by next week! There will be a completely different theme than this week… but you won’t find out until Mini Monday!
