Etched Whiskey Glasses

Yesterday was my brother's birthday and these etched whiskey glasses were the perfect personalized gift!
I started with some nice glasses from Macy's.

Added a vinyl stencil with a graphic I made out of his initials using my Silhouette machine.

Put the glasses in a pyrex and held them in place with dish cloths (very fancy, I know!) and covered the initials with etching cream.

I usually wait much longer than the instructions, this time I left the cream on for about an hour, to make sure the etching is nice and even. Wash it off, remove the stencil and you're left with these personalized glasses!


An easy gift and you could modify this so many different ways!

  6. Great job...I was a little confused for a second by the design on your vinyl (which also looked nice)...that brings me to the question of do you use regular contact paper when doing projects like these? I was wondering because I have a Cricut and when I asked the question (in the store) I was told not to use regular contact paper and I wondered if that was from a sales point of view or not.

  8. I love this! I really really want to get my hands on one of these. I have heard great things about people getting some engraved whiskey glasses. I guess for some of my friends its turned into a fun tradition and thing to have them.
