DIY Glass Etched Mason Jar Mugs | Do It Yourself

Couple Set (His & Hers): Glass Etched Mason Jar Mugs
Hello, Hello! I discovered this adorable idea a couple weeks before Valentine's Day and thought that it would be a perfect gift for any time of the year! This was rather quick & easy to make but yet it looks like you spent a fair amount of time on it. I created a video if you would like to see a full visual of how I created these glass etched mason jar mugs! I hope you can follow along!


Clear Glass Cup
Glass Etching Cream (The one I am using is from Martha Stewart's collection)
Vinyl Adhesive Stencils (This is also from the Martha Stewart Collection as well! p.s. you can also use regular adhesive stickers and be creative!)
Painter's Tape
Rubber Gloves


Step 1. Wipe down the surface of the jar that you will be placing the stencil down on

Step 2. Place your stencil on the surface of the cup

Step 3. Use the painters tape to tape off around the stencil along with any spaces between the lettering that you do not want the etching cream to seep through to!

Step 4. Put on gloves! Apply the etching cream overtop of the stencil in a thick layer until you can barely see the stencil itself

Step 5. Let the etching cream sit for the desired time, according to the directions on the bottle. I had to leave mine on for at least 15 minutes.

Step 6. Put on gloves! Wash the etching cream off under the tap! (Your adhesive stencils should be reusable)

Step 7. Dry.

Step 8. You're all done!

Let me know how this project went if you tried it out!
