Etched glass polka dot drinking glassAfter our first glass etching adventure we were excited to try out more designs. We decided to try a set of mason jar cups with an etched polka dot pattern. The dot pattern is inspired by a Kate Spade vase that I received as a wedding gift... it's so cute and I thought the concept would translate really well to drinking glasses. 

Glass etching diy1. Supplies: scissors, etching cream (we used Armour Etch), mason jars, contact paper, sponge brush, gloves for protection. 2. First, cut out large circles in the contact paper. 3. Then, apply them all over the mason jars. 4. Next, following the detailed instructions of the etching cream when applying it to the mason jars. You want to pay close attention to the instructions on the cream since it can be extremely dangerous if it comes in contact with you skin. Follow all safety guidelines. Here's a link to the instructions we used to learn. We leave our cream on for about three minutes. 5. Next, remove the contact paper and wash cream off in running water. Use a sponge and don't be afraid to really scrub it until the cream is completely gone. 6. All finished! Enjoy your new glasses. Your new glasses are dishwasher safe.
