Upcycle some old milk bottles or glass containers into these beautiful and chic Glass Etched Vases!

Happy New Year! This is Lindi, visiting again from Love Create Celebrate. How many of you are deep into cleaning and purging mode?! My husband and I have already cleaned out FIVE closets since the New Year! We’re pretty proud actually! lol. When I was cleaning, I came across these old milk bottles and had the perfect idea to DIY them! I can’t wait to show you how easy it was to make these Glass-Etched Vases.

I’m ALL about quick and easy DIYs. I try to make things that are easy, functional, and that I will be proud to display in my home. Since I didn’t want to purge these old bottles, I found the perfect solution.

Instructions: 

Start by placing your elastic bands at various angles around your bottle or vase. Make sure that the elastics are tight (so they don’t slip) and flat.

Using your foam brush, dab the glass etching cream onto the bottle in a thick layer, covering all of the outside glass.

Once the entire glass is covered, let it sit according to the instructions on your bottle of glass-etching cream.

When ready, simple run the bottle under a tap to rinse off all of the cream, and remove the elastics.

    Hey Brittany and team…I have a question. Would I be able to be this process on my glass shower wall? We had our master bath remodeled years ago and I always have wished I would have etched the glass front of the shower with the Texas star (nothing too elaborate). I think it would be super sweet!
