Mr. & Mrs. etched drinking glasses are a great decoration for any wedding! The method of glass etching in this tutorial can be applied to any kind of glass; make Mr. & Mrs. wine glasses, champagne glasses, or anything you want!

Before I begin, here's a brief overview of how the glass-etching works:

You create a stencil from adhesive-backed vinyl. This stencil will be a negative of the image to be etched. After you've completed the stencil, apply it to the glass. You CANNOT have bubbles around the edges of any letters or images. If you do, it could ruin the etching! After you apply the stencil, some etching cream is applied heavily on the vinyl stencil, without going over the edges of the vinyl. About thirty minutes later, the cream can be washed off, the vinyl can be removed, and you have etched glass!

If you didn't understand that, don't worry -- I'll explain a lot more in further steps!

Step 1: Ingredients

Here's what you'll need:

• Glasses (I'm using pint glasses)

• Vinyl Cutter (I'm using the Silhouette Portrait)

Craft Vinyl

Vinyl Transfer Tape

Armour Etch Glass Etching Cream

• Foam Brushes (cheap from Walmart)

• Disposable Gloves (again, cheap from Walmart)
