Materials List

  • etchall® dip'n etch
  • Plastic container, large enough to hold the bottle
  • Pebbles, marbles, or coins 
  • Jute
  • Scissors

Instructions for DIY Etched Glass Vases:

  1. Clean the outside of the glass bottles thoroughly then wipe with vinegar to make sure it's squeaky clean. Dry thoroughly.

  2. To determine how much dip'n etch you'll need, fill the bottles with the pebbles (so they don't float) then place one bottle in the plastic container. Fill the container with water up to the place where you want the etching to stop.

  3. Remove the bottle and the water level will sink. Mark the water level then empty the container. Dry the container and the bottle thoroughly.

  4. Pour dip'n etch into the container, up to the water level mark, then place the bottle in the container. Leave for 15 minutes.

  5. After 15 minutes remove the bottle. Rinse the outside thoroughly and dry. Set aside and place the second bottle in the same container of dip'n etch. Repeat the process until all 3 bottles have been etched. DO NOT rinse over a porcelain sink. Etching product may accidentally etch the glaze.

  6. Wrap the neck of each bottle with jute, while the other bottles are being etched. After the last bottle has been etched, pour the dip'n etch back into the container. (I cut the top off a plastic soda bottle to use for a funnel.) NOTE: etchall® crème and dip are re-usable. 

  7. Leave as is, or add your favorite flowers and enjoy!
