Lately, I’ve been seeing monogramed wine glasses at cute boutiques everywhere. I decided it would be fun (and cost-effective!) to create some of my own using the wine glasses I have sitting around from wine tasting! The good thing is that you’ll always remember which one is yours! You can etch a number, monogram or pretty much anything on the glasses. When Zan and I got married, we received water glasses with an etched P from Williams-Sonoma… I obsessed over that little P for months! Now that I realize how easy it is to do myself, all of my glasses will be etched, haha! You could also etch a cake stand dome, water glasses, stemless wine glasses, salt and pepper shakers and more. Either way, everyone will know which glass is theirs and you will LOVE having these around. No more losing wine charms : ) Also, check back later today because I have another project that goes with this!
I made my own stencil! Read below to
find out how…
The second pic down is what it looks like after you peel off the paper, but haven’t washed the etching cream off yet.
And tada – the last pic is the finished product!
Etching cream, wine glass, paint brush, stencil OR make your own stencil, tape (click here to see one of my favorite adhesive tools)
1. To make your own stencil, print out your favorite font (make sure it’s bold and large) and cut the number out with an X-acto knife.
2. Then use double-sided tape to stick the back of the paper to the wine glass.
3. Once the stencil is taped onto the glass, press around the edges. Use the paint brush to dip into the etching cream and trace the inside of the stencil.
4. Let the etching cream sit on the glass for 5-10 minutes.
5. Remove the paper and rinse the etching cream off with running water.
