.:Tutorial Tuesday - Monogrammed Etched Glasses:.

Go here to enter the Tootsie Wootsie giveaway.


I promised a tutorial on these babies, and a tutorial you shall have!

What you need:

- glasses
- etching cream (this stuff can be spendy; I used a 40% off coupon at Michaels)
- paint brush
- vinyl
- Silhouette (or scissors or some other digital cutter!)


Use your Silhouette (or scissors) to cut out your outlined monogram on to vinyl.

Remove the vinyl and smooth it out on your glass where you want it.


Use your paint brush to apply etching cream inside the outline.


Let it sit for 5 minutes.

Rinse it off with water.


Peel off the vinyl and admire your newly monogrammed glasses!


Excuse the glare on my pictures! I'm not a photographer, and I was trying to use natural light, and since it was glass, that's what happened!


Make them cute and give them away as a hostess gift, or keep them for yourself!

  5. I just got etching cream for Christmas and cannot wait to use it :) Do you know if the glass will still be dishwasher safe after being etched?

  11. Ooooo, sooo cute! For some reason the glass etching seems like the most daunting project for me with the Silhouette! I just need to buck up and do it, because these turned out fabulous and you made it look so easy!
