Made it Monday: Glass Etched Casserole Dishes

Happy Monday! This week, I'm going to share a fast project with you. One of my really good friends is getting married soon. Her friend threw a shower for her that was themed "fill the house room to room," where each guest was assigned a room to buy for. I got kitchen-perfect for me to try out glass etching casserole dishes! 

The process is quite easy, but I did forget to take pictures, so you'll just have to bear with my explanation. 

I cut out the bride's soon-to-be new last name in vinyl with my cricut to make a stencil. I put the vinyl stencil on the glass (the vinyl is sticky on the back). Then I applied glass etching cream to the part that said "Newland." I apply it with a small paintbrush or a foam brush. The cream can be pricey, but use a coupon at your local craft store and it makes it quite reasonable, especially when this bad boy will last you a really long time.

Here are the finished dishes:

This is a great way to never lose your dishes! I have also glass etched numerous drinking glasses, glass blocks, and champagne glasses for a wedding. Its a great way to add that little extra flare!
