Etched Christmas Jars

Aaron got me a glass etching kit ages ago. It makes total sense seeing how much I love glass jars. I don't know why it took me so long to break it out. I experimented with these small mason jars and it is so easy and doesn't take as long as I thought it would.

I love the results. I have so many ideas now! I want more stencils for more designs and to work faster. The alphabet I have only has one of each letter, so it takes two rounds of etching to create the word "CHEER" to get both "E's".

I am also going to experiment with creating stencils with my Cricut and vinyl adhesive. So many ideas!

Funny thing - I tried to etch a glass chimney and it didn't even leave the tiniest mark. Thought I did something wrong and tried it again. Then my dad pointed out that the glass was probably tempered for heat (candles) and would be impervious to the etching compound. Ahhhh!

These jars and more will be for sale at the South Wedge Holiday Bazaar on Saturday.
