Etched Heart Wine Glassesglass

Materials Needed:

  • Basic wineglasses
  • Heart stickers in a variety of sizes
  • 1-inch wide painter’s tape
  • Etching cream
  • Foam brush
  • Paper plate
  • Sponge
  • Sink with room-temperature water

Directions:

Step 1:
Use painter’s tape to cover the top few inches of the glass stem. Apply small pieces of painter’s tape to the inside of the glass. Line up the tape with the rim of the glass.

Step 2:
Apply the heart stickers in a random pattern all over the glass. Use big hearts and small hearts to create any pattern you want. Wherever you put a sticker, the glass will remain fully transparent and clear when finished.

Step 3:
Pour out a small amount of the etching cream onto a paper plate. Paint on the etching cream in a thick layer all over the glass. Make sure to cover the whole glass and the stickers. The thicker the layer, the better it holds. Let it sit for 15 minutes.

Step 4:
Wash off the etching cream under room-temperature water by using a sponge.

Step 5:
Peel off all the heart stickers. You’ll start to see how the hearts are clear and the rest of the glass is frosted. Once all the stickers are off, dry your glass and drink up!
