Hello crafty friends! Today, I’m sharing a simple tutorial with you using the Silhouette Glass Etching Starter Kit. This stuff is amazing and perfect for personalizing something or making a thoughtful gift for someone!

To make this etched decanter, here’s what you’ll need:

  • Silhouette CAMEO or Portrait
  • Silhouette Cutting Mat
  • Silhouette Cutting Blade
  • Glass Decanter
  • Silhouette Glass Etching Starter Kit (This contains everything you’ll need and more: etching creme, stencil vinyl and transfer tape, hook, scraper)
  • Small paint brush or q-tip (to apply etching creme)
  • Gloves (optional but recommended)

Shape used:

Let’s get started!

  • Measure your bottle to determine the size you want the phrase to be. Mine was 3″x3″.
  • Re-size the phrase in Silhouette Studio and cut on the stencil vinyl.

  • Clean the glass surface using a cotton ball and some rubbing alcohol.
  • Using the transfer paper, apply the stencil to the glass and use the scraper to ensure it’s well-adhered.
  • Liberally apply the etching creme to the exposed glass.
  • Allow to sit about 60 seconds and then check to ensure it’s etched well. If not, let sit a few more seconds.
  • Scrape excess etching cream back into the bottle (Yes, you can re-use it!)
  • Rinse well and then remove stencil vinyl.
