Make Your Own Etched Glass!

Hello Bloggers! Happy New Year to you! I have a wonderful blog idea today that can work along side any type of well-wishing cheers or toast!


Kazan Clark, from the Spellbinder's Blog, created these beautiful stemware pieces using plain glasses, and then adding the etched glass look! And believe me, it's so much easier than it looks!

First, take a Spellbinders Edgeabilities Die that you like, place it on a vinyl strip, and run it through a die cutter!

Space how you'd like your etched glass pattern to be applied, and then brush on Glass Etching Cream to create the frosted look in the open spaces.

Wait 5 minutes for it to dry, remove the vinyl, and viola! You have yourself your own designer glassware!

Kazan then took it a step further, and added bling onto the pattern! You could switch out the bling dependent on the party-themes! Red bling (like shown above) for Valentine's Day or the holidays, Green for St. Patrick's Day, Gold or Silver for New Year's parties, or someone's favorite color for their birthday!

I hope you give this fun project a try!
To win a Faber-Castell Gift Set, just join our following and comment below about some 2012 things you're looking forward to! The winner will be announced on Wednesday.

Thanks for reading! I wish you all the happiness, good health, and love that 2012 could bring!
-Michelle

  6. fab, great for a custom look. i'm looking forward to my DS's college grad at the end of summer, it has been a long time for him (he's in a 5 yr enginnering program), i'll have some extra money (i'm sure it'll go somewhere). on a sad note, i'm looking for home care for my dad so he doesn't have to go to a nursing home which he'd hate.

  47. Always loved the look of watched glass but never thought about using a die for a pattern. I wonder how a doily die would look on a plate?

    I'm hoping for better health this year so I can work & craft more!

    I follow on Twitter & YouTube!
