DIY Etched Jar Drinking Glasses


I love a good homemade Christmas gift – especially one that is quick, easy, and personalized! We teamed up with our BFFs at Plaid Crafts to create these etched jars that are so cute for a family or neighbor Christmas gift, and they took less than 30 minutes to make! Who wouldn’t love a jar with their name, a lid, and a straw? Oh, and filled with Christmas candy? Yes please! Here is how we made them…



Martha Stewart Crafts® Glass Etching Cream & Brush
Stencil, vinyl cut out (I used my Silhouette Portrait)
Masking/painters tape


Step 1: Tape your stencil or vinyl design on your jar. Make sure there is a thick border on all sides of the design to prevent the cream from getting anywhere outside your design.


Step 2: Apply etching cream according to directions. Let sit for at least 15 minutes and then rinse off.


Step 3: Remove your stencil or vinyl.


Didn’t they turn out so cute? Time for the candy…


Add a string and a tag, and it’s the perfect gift!


Happy Christmas crafting! And be sure to follow Plaid on FacebookInstagramPinterest, and via Email as they celebrate 40 years of crafting with their incredible products!
