Thank you to Martha Stewart Living for sponsoring this post about Martha Stewart Crafts as part of the 12 Months of Martha program!
Hi friends! Time for another round of 12 Months of Martha with Martha Stewart Crafts! If you’re new around here, this year I’m involved in a 12 Months of Martha program with Martha Stewart Living. You can get more information and follow along on our 12 Months of Martha Page! Now on to this month’s project – an easy Monogrammed Etched Cloche!
Now I just LOVE monogram projects – ok and etched glass projects too! Really, I could monogram or etch anything in our house and be perfectly happy with it! So when I got this month’s #12MonthsofMartha box and saw the awesome stencil tape and etching cream, I knew just what I wanted to do! I bought this lovely tall glass cloche on clearance for $4 at a hobby store about a month ago that I hadn’t put to use yet. Can you believe that deal? I couldn’t pass it up for sure! I think that is jut needed something. And I knew that a ring of etched glass with Martha Stewart Crafts Etching Cream would add just the visual interest I was looking for! And of course I had to throw our monogram in there for good measure. It was a simple 30-minute project, let me show you!
What you’ll need:
- Martha Stewart Crafts Glass Etching Cream
- Martha Stewart Crafts Stencil Tape
- Glass cloche
- Rubbing alcohol
- Monogram stencil/vinyl
And the steps:
- Clean your glass thoroughly with rubbing alcohol, water and soap.
- Add your monogram – I used an “S” that I cut out of vinyl with a cutting machine.
- Add the stencil tape above and below the monogram.
- Generously apply the etching cream over the blocked out area and on top of the monogram – with the etching cream more is more! You want to make sure that the layer is thick!
- After 15 minutes, rinse the etching cream off and you’re done!
I put the cloche over one of our DIY Mercury Glass Succulent Planters, on top of some books and it’s just perfect! I love the added depth and interest it gives to the simple $4 cloche.
