Etched Glass Serving Pitcher

I get so excited when the arrival of Spring approaches. Springtime in the South represents everything that is lovely; porch swinging, flowers blooming, birds chirping….and lemonade sipping!

To get your lemonade soirees in tip top shape you’re going to want to make yourself a fancy etched glass serving pitcher. And by “fancy”, I mean it has your initial on it. Etched. On the glass. Fancy!

To get started, you need:

  • A glass pitcher
  • Glass Etching Starter Kit

Begin by choosing a monogram for your glass pitcher. I found this “Monogram B” in the Silhouette store and liked that it already had the square outlined for me.


Now, when you open it yours will look like this:

  • You don’t need all of those outer squares, so right click on your monogram, choose ungroup and remove all of the boxes except for the 2 immediately surrounding your letter.
  • Resize to fit your pitcher/container/whatever it is you’re etching.

  • Using your hook, remove all of the areas that you want to be etched. Where there is stencil vinyl the glass will be left untouched, and where exposed will be etched.

  • Using the transfer tape and scraper provided in the Glass Etching Kit, firmly adhere your design.

  • Using either your scraper or a foam brush, apply a heavy and even coat of the etching cream.

  • Allow to set for 30 to 60 seconds and wipe away the excess cream with a paper towel. Thoroughly rinse off the remaining etching cream, and dry.

Gently remove the stencil and voila! You have yourself a pretty little lemonade server.

A couple of notes to help you along:

  •  The etching cream stencil is clear so be very careful not to extend the etching cream beyond your square.
  • The scraping tool is your friend. Make absolutely certain that your design is firmly adhered to the glass. Any bubble and you’ll allow the cream to seep underneath.
  •  Don’t try to use regular vinyl with the etching cream. Trust me. Don’t try it. 🙂

Do you have a favorite project you’ve created with the etching cream? I’m anxious to etch more things!

  1. You add the comment, “do yourself a favor, when etching ,don’t use “regular” vinyl. Which should I use. I already have jar etching creme, but no kit.
    Do I use sign vinyl, maybe a heavier quality? Is that what you ment?
