ETCETERAS: Etched Glass Milk Bottle

Etched Glass Milk Bottle (5)I have such a fun project to share with you today. Have you ever etched glass? It’s not as hard as it sounds, in fact, it was super easy and I can’t wait to create more etched glass pieces. I happened upon this project because of a nice reader.

Etched Glass Milk Bottle (4)She left a comment on one of my painted jar posts. I emailed her back and she mentioned she a glass etching product called Etchall and sent me some to play with.

Etched Glass Milk Bottle (9)The process is as easy as stenciling. I selected a small bottle that originally had some type of dipping sauce in it. The shape reminded me a small dairy bottle so I decided to use my alphabet stencils to spell out milk. I used a piece of painters tape to make sure my letters were straight.

And then to make sure I didn’t drip any etching cream around the letters I taped the area around the stencils. You want to make sure everything is securely adhered before applying the etching cream.

Etched Glass Milk Bottle (7)I propped the bottle between a rock and shell because that’s what I had within reach. The directions state to use a heavy coat and this was my interpretation. You leave the etching cream on for 15 minutes and then rinse off.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I received complimentary product for the sake of this review. No other compensation was received and all opinions are mine. Really!


  1. The milk bottle is darling. When I was in 4-H in the 50's, I did a craft project using glass etching products. I made a cream and sugar set for my mom. It's interesting how some crafts disappear for a while and then make a comeback. One thing I don't see in the blogs I read are ladies doing needlepoint.

  2. What a great a great little project. I love glass etching! Pinning! (Thanks for sharing at You're gonna love it!)
