*Merry Monday* Etched Juice Glasses
I love little juice glasses don't you? They are so cute and small and the possibilities for personalizing them are endless. So I thought - what a great gift! Inexpensive and unique. I bought some glasses at Tuesday Morning for $1.29 each, but my hubby also saw some at Goodwill for $.37 - super super cheap!
Next I browsed around on Google and found some images that I liked - deer seem to be really in right now so I decided to make 2 glasses - a Mr. and Mrs. Deer.
Here is what you will need:
contact paper or masking tape
a picture to use as a stencil
Step 1: Print out the image onto cardstock. Cut out the silhouette to make a stencil.
Step 2: Trace the image onto the contact paper or masking tape.
Step 3: Tape the stencil to your glass and cut out the image (right on the glass - it won't ,matter if it scratches it, you are engraving).
Step 4: Follow the directions on the etching cream - put it over your stencil, let it sit (I found it took 5 minutes not 60 seconds), then rinse off.
Step 5: Remove the stencil and admire your work!
Happy etching and have a merry merry Monday! - jessica
