Hi everyone!! It is Krista from The Happy Housie back again and I am so excited to be here today sharing this super easy DIY Etched Glass Typography Vase with you – just in time for your holiday table.
For this project you will need:
- a vase or large candle holder
- glass etching cream and brush (I used Martha Stewart brand)
- alphabet stencils (or you could use scrap booking letter stickers to do the reverse etched pattern)
I started by cleaning my vase thoroughly according the package directions on the etching cream.
I then placed my adhesive letter stencils randomly around the vase, in varying directions.
I made sure all the edges were pressed down nicely and then applied my etching cream. The package instructions say to leave it for fifteen minutes and then rinse off, but I would experiment a little first. When I only left the cream on for 15 minutes it didn’t seem to etch as completely as I wanted,
but perhaps I hadn’t applied enough of the etching cream.
After experimenting, I applied about this much and left it for a couple of hours
while we went over to a friends for dinner.
When I returned I rinsed all the etching cream off thoroughly and washed the vase
again inside and out with warm water.
You can see that the pattern is really subtle. I also like that it can be used all year around
because the typography is not specific to one holiday.
Here I have it dressed up for Christmas, but you could add a different coloured candle
and perhaps some corn around the base and it would look great for your Thanksgiving table
I have a few other Projects I would love to share with you and would be thrilled if you had the chance to hop over and visit me at The Happy Housie to see what I have been up to lately…
such as how I made these Decoupaged Succulent Mug Planters (a great DIY gift idea!):
Or take a look at our Late Fall Mantel….
And I finally even shared how we created our Faux Mantel
out of an old ugly china hutch from a second hand store….
Thank you Tanya for having me here today…it is always so much fun
to connect with the readers of Twelve O Eight! Thanks for reading.
And remember my housie friends, HOME isn’t built in a day.
Enjoy the journey.
I absolutely LOVE typography, thank you so much for sharing your creativity with
