DIY Glass-Etched Vases
Happy New Year! This is Lindi, visiting again from Love Create Celebrate. How many of you are deep into cleaning and purging mode?! My husband and I have already cleaned out FIVE closets since the New Year! We’re pretty proud actually! lol. When I was cleaning, I came across these old milk bottles and had the perfect idea to DIY them! I can’t wait to show you how easy it was to make these Glass-Etched Vases.
I’m ALL about quick and easy DIYs. I try to make things that are easy, functional, and that I will be proud to display in my home. Since I didn’t want to purge these old bottles, I found the perfect solution.

- Glass bottle or vase
- Glass Etching Cream
- Foam brush
- Elastic bands
Start by placing your elastic bands at various angles around your bottle or vase. Make sure that the elastics are tight (so they don’t slip) and flat.
Using your foam brush, dab the glass etching cream onto the bottle in a thick layer, covering all of the outside glass.
Once the entire glass is covered, let it sit according to the instructions on your bottle of glass-etching cream.
When ready, simple run the bottle under a tap to rinse off all of the cream, and remove the elastics.
I LOVE how they turned out! A beautiful way to display all of those fresh spring flowers once the seasons change 🙂

Cute project! FYI: if you can scrape off the etching cream, you can put it back in the jar and reuse it, That stuff is not cheap!
Very nice! Thanks for sharing!
Let me see how to put this??? They are fabulous, gorgeous, fantastic, just to name a few of how you nailed it again. I am so excited to see all the wonderful things you will be posting in 2017, and we get to see and/or make them to. Thank you and happy 2017
Hey Brittany and team…I have a question. Would I be able to be this process on my glass shower wall? We had our master bath remodeled years ago and I always have wished I would have etched the glass front of the shower with the Texas star (nothing too elaborate). I think it would be super sweet!
Rats….you need an edit button!……Would I be able to DO…..
LoL…..that’s what I get for writing this at 6:30!
