Day 4: Simple Glass Etching~ Personalized Casserole Dish

18 Nov

Today we have a great idea from Jill at Create.Craft.Love ~ a simple glass etching tutorial.  She has used it to personalize a casserole dish, but really you could pretty much use it on any kind of glass!  What a wonderful gift idea!  Read on to learn how to make your own, plus don’t forget to visit today’s sponsor: Upcycled Whimsies ~ a mother and daughter team selling some beautiful upcycled treasures!

We are a mother and daughter that loves to hunt and find the gem in the rubble. We then take it and transform it into something awesome for your home. We enjoy the hunt and also the work the goes into our items.  Bright Housewares and Vintage.. something for everybody

My daughter- Ashley- was raised with her Mom going to yard sales and flea markets and buying junk and “old stuff”. When she was young, she really didn’t like those things, but now with her own family, she has grown to love and appreciate the idea of “junking”! We love to scour the stores, yard sales, flea markets to see what treasures abound that we can buy and upcycle into a whole new creation! We also love the “creative process of tearing apart, cleaning, painting, and transforming to give an item NEW LIFE”!

As you can see from our items, we LOVE OWLS!! We think they are just really COOL! They are WISE,too, so we hope that we are wise-in all our efforts- and we want to promote a positive and friendly etsy shop to all our customers! Thanks for all your patronage and support now and in the future! Blessings and PEACE to you all!

Hi Sweet Benanna & Sam readers!  I’m Jill and I have a little craft blog called Create.Craft.Love! Lisa invited me here to share a simple handmade gift to get you in the Christmas giving spirit!  So I decided to share a really cute and simple idea for personalizing a casserole dish for the cook in your life!

I have totally been crushin’ on the glass etching!  In fact, the main reason I asked for the Cameo was so I could etch me some glass.

The Silhouette Blog has several tutorials on creating your image and transferring it to use for glass etching.  I believe they have their own etching cream.  Since I do not live by a store that carries Silhouette products, I ran to Michael’s and picked up some Armour Etch.

I cannot believe how easy it was to use!  Once your stencil is applied, you glop it on and let it sit for five minutes.  Then just rinse off and dry!

One the thing I learned was to let it sit for about 5-7 minutes before rinsing.  The first time I only left it on for a minute and it looks splotchy.

This is a GREAT gift idea!  I’m thinking housewarming, weddings, Christmas, ANYTHING!

Would love for you to follow along with me on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest!
Happy Holidays!

Jill @ Create.Craft.Love.
