First off, Pinterest challenging isn't as inexpensive as I would like it to be. I'm kind of cheap, and I don't want my crafts to be expensive. I think that maybe when Sherry and Katie do it, they are crafty and have most of the stuff in their house already. Or maybe they are just more economical than me. I wanted to do a challenge that required 3 different colours of spray paint, spray primer and some top coat. That would be like $50! And I would probably screw it up huge. No way.
I found this project on glass etching. Now in this one, she was making them for portion control purposes. I planned on giving my project, if successful, to my friend as a bachelorette party gift, and let me tell you, Michaela is not one to care about portion control when it comes to wine. So I just wanted to make a nice design on it.
First I tried sticking some circle stickers on a glass and etching around it, hoping for a neat design. FAIL.
|My first attempt - a big mess of etched glass|
Of course I had to throw in a picture of Pipsi photo bombing. It's what she does best.
Oh and if anyone is interested in the cost of this little project, I lucked out in the shopping department.
Armour Etch - on sale at Michael's $7.99
Stencil - on sale at Michael's $4.99
Paint Brush - Michael's $0.89
12 Glasses - on sale at Zellers $11.99
For a grand total of $25.86 plus tax. And I have 7 glasses and some Armour Etch left over, so I can always make some more!
