As a creative escape from the drudgery of my 9 to 5 job, I enrolled in glass etching classes last year. The classes involved lots of glass engraving activities, and though I had to go through the initial learning hiccups, I nailed it at the end. Taking a cue from Sometimes Homemade, my first glass etching project at home was with mason jars.
Mason Jars with Engravings
What You’ll Need
- Mason jars
- Etching cream
- Paint brush
- Rubbing alcohol
- Cotton Ball
- Clean the jars thoroughly with the cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol and leave it for drying.
- Place the stencil on the jar and apply the etching cream to the inside with your finger or a small brush. Allow it to sit for 10 minutes.
- Wash the jar under running water and pat dry. (For best results, apply the cream once again and wash in the same way)
- Remove the stencils carefully.
My personalized engraved mason jars are ready to be packed into a glittery gift box as my sister’s birthday is right around the corner.
