Etched Glass Flutes

Do you guys LOVE Valentine's Day?
I love my hubby all year but think it's fun to celebrate big and make cute little gifts for loved ones -
something a little more then just a simple Valentine -
so I wanted to share with you the first part of my Valentine gifts this year -

 
I have seen etching all over the place - but have never done it.
To be honest - for some reason - it sorta scared me a little bit -
How do you etch glass??
Weird, right? Because etching this was SO EASY!!
 
Like - really super duper easy -
 
First - you need to grab your supplies -
You will need:
champagne flutes
Etching cream
vinyl
and a paint brush
 


I bought my champagne flutes at Ikea - they were $5 for 6! That works great for me because we hardly ever use them and when we do my 2 year old likes to be in on the action too!
I used my silhouette and cut out the vinyl - if you don't have a vinyl cutter you can use an exacto knife or a die cut machine to cut out your shape.
 
 
Peel the vinyl carefully off it's backing and stick it onto your flute.
 
 
Now we start the etching process -
 
 
Simply brush on a think layer of the etching cream - lightly brushing it on.
Wait for about 5 minutes...
 
 
... then wash it off. Peel off your vinyl and your done!
 
 
See! I told you it was easy!!
This project only took me about 10 minutes tops -
Quick and easy - but so cute!!
 
 
 
 
Mine say Husband and Wife - perfect for Valentine's Day -
but you can make your's say whatever you want.
 
His & Hers
Your names
Nicknames
 
What will your Glass Valentine Day Flutes say?
