A few months ago I received a great goodie package of Martha Stewart craft products. I made these decoupage ornaments with it. There was also some glass etching cream and reusable stencils. I decided to try them and made this easy glass etching ornament with a snowflake on it.
Lets just preface this with the fact that it was so easy it may become a new addiction!
First I took a snowflake adhesive stencil and applied it to the glass ball. Because it is a rounded surface you will need to work with it a little to get the air pockets out around the stencil edges. You may have to crimp a few places.
Then get out the etching cream. It comes with a brush to use as well. It recommends wearing gloves but I like to live on the wild side and was careful not to get it on me. Just brush on in a even layer over the stencil.
I’m sure you are wondering about why there is stuff inside the ball, that was a bright idea that didn’t work for this, but did work for another idea you will see next week!
After about 10 -15 minutes you just wash off the etching cream, pull off the stencil and wash it off. Set the stencil aside to dry with the sticky side up then you just put it back on the cello page it comes on. Save it for the next time you want to use it! Tie a bow at the top and you are done!
I hope you liked these easy glass etching ornament, do you ever make ornaments for your tree?
