Etching cream is like magic in a jar. Paint it on, wash it off, and magically glass is transformed into a slightly opaque matte version of it’s former self. Block off the glass first with heart stickers and create a pair of polka dot (technically, heart) glasses for a romantic Valentine’s day dinner. Or in the case of my husband and I: thai delivery on the couch complete with red wine in frosted glasses. Here is a the quick version of this DIY – for more details, see it on HGTV.
Supplies you’ll need:
- Armour Etch
- painter’s tape
- a foam brush
- heart stickers
- two wine glasses
The super quick instructions: 1) cover the stem and the inside of the rim of the glass with painter’s tape, 3) place the heart stickers all around the glass in a random pattern, 3) cover the glass with Armour Etch.
Let the Armour Etch sit on the glass for fifteen minutes and do it’s secret magic. Wash off under running water. Use a sponge to make sure all the Armour Etch of cleaned off.
Peel off the heart stickers.
If you’re going to enjoy your Valentine’s dinner at a table like civilized people (unlike my eating-dinner-on-the couch style), set it with a bold runner, simple gold flatware, some pretty flowers, and the etched heart glasses you made so beautifully.
