First I am going to explain why I chose this project on scout crafts week! These are great to make with your troop. The etching cream is a chemical and should be handled by an adult. But the monogram itself or shape could be chosen by the scout and added to the jar. These would make a great project that could then be gifted to volunteers or others that help with the troop. You can also make a bunch of these yourself for your scout troop! Everyone would have their own marked glass for meetings.
Now lets get to HOW to make these great monogram etched mason jar glasses! First you will need your monogram shape. I cut the letters from vinyl using my electronic craft cutter. You can do that if you have one. Or you can use a craft knife or scissors to cut out any shape you would like from adhesive backed vinyl. Then it is just a matter of using the etching cream according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Don’t believe it is that easy? Watch the super quick video below!
Fast right??? In case you missed it, just apply your vinyl to the clean surface and press well. Apply your etching cream and allow to sit the amount of time recommended. Remove and rinse with water. Remove the vinyl. You have just etched a glass with a monogram! So awesome and so easy! Your troop would love watching the glass etching process!
