This weekend I will be attending 1 of 2 bridal showers for my sister-in-law, Heather. This weekend’s shower is being hosted by her friends and next weekend’s is hosted by her mom, sister-in-law, and myself. Today I took the little man on an adventure to Target, Kohls, and Pier 1 to shop for gifts for each shower. The gift above is for the shower that we are hosting next weekend. This week’s gift is hopefully getting a little diy-love before I share!
It had told Heather that I would be taking care of her champagne glasses for the wedding. I was just going to put their names on the glasses, then decided Mr. & Mrs., then I decided to go one step further. I present to you, Mr. & Mrs. bird champagne glasses:
I used my Silhouette to cut out the vinyl. (I won a Silhouette on the Fireflies and Jellybeans blog over a year ago! I love it!) Make sure you get the vinyl smoothed out well so that you don’t have any mistakes with the next step.
I used Armour Etch and followed the directions on the bottle. I purchased this bottle from Amazon. It’s a little pricey, but a little goes a long way. I’ve used this bottle for several projects, including etching names onto Pyrex dishes!
Glob (yes, technical glass etching term) the etching cream on thick and wait patiently for five minutes while snapping pictures of your beautiful project in the making.
Wipe the cream off using a damp cloth. I try to avoid letting the etching cream even touch any other part of the glasses. If you get any on there, be sure to wipe it off quickly. Then rinse the glasses off, making sure you’ve removed all of the etching cream.
Peel off the vinyl to reveal the beautiful finished product! I absolutely love how they turned out! I know that Heather will love them, too!
I purchased the glasses from Pier 1 and all of the towels/dishcloths and basket were items that she registered for at Target.
In other news, this gigantic package came today. It contains many yards of fabric to make a custom curtain order for my Etsy shop. I better get busy!
And I couldn’t resist ordering some fabric for myself. I ordered a half yard of each of these. I’m planning on making the Buttercup Purse sometime before the end of the summer!
