Monogrammed $1 Store Vase

I am in charge of activities for our Relief Society's Christmas Craft Day this year, and I had lot of fun thinking up inexpensive, beautiful, meaning items for the women.  

One thing I knew I wanted to create for them was a monogrammed vase using etched glass (if you've been reading recently, you'll know I am currently obsessed with etched glass!) What better way to do etching than on a vase-- it looks so sophisticated and elegant-- just like whatever goes inside the vase! 

I got this little gem from the Dollar Store!
(My favorite place to peruse for ideas.  There is so much potential there.)

Apply the stencil and Armor Etch etching creme:

Allow the creme to sit for 5 full minutes and wash off completely
(Be sure to get inside all the lines.  It likes to congregate there just to annoy you.)

Starting to peel off the vinyl stencil to reveal the etching is my favorite part... 

Isn't it beautiful??!?!?!?!?!?!

And, so far, the Relief Society women love it!

  1. So pretty! You know I love etched glass too. Too bad I don't have the vinyl cutter to make the cool things you make!
