I LOVE the look of etched glass and I had no idea how easy it was to do!! This is a new favorite project for me, especially when it comes to gift giving!! You have to try this! I wanted to test it out on something simple first (in case I messed it up big time, it wouldn't be a huge upset). I just grabbed a wine glass from the cabinet and away I went ( I also thought this would be a great idea to remind my husband which wine glass is mine, and not to be drank from :-) ). Here is what you will need to get started:
Something glass (anything you like)
Adhesive backed vinyl
Transfer Paper (cling wrap, contact paper)
Glass Etch and something to apply it
Something to cut your vinyl, either a Cricut (or like machine) or just an exacto knife (if your good at free hand, which I am not)
I used my Cricut to cut out the letter that I wanted (normally I probably would have done a J for our last name, but I already had an A done and my name is Alison, so it worked). If you can't tell I am all about using what you have on hand, aka cost efficient!! After cutting out what I wanted I trimmed around my letter to remove the excess vinyl, then applied a sheet of transfer paper over the letter. Make sure you rub the transfer paper firmly over your vinyl to get a good stick.
