The first Tuesday of the month means it’s time for the November Create with Me DIY Challenge! This fun challenge is where you, our readers, vote on the projects we’ll work on each month. Last month, you all voted for our group to create something about glass etching – which reminds me; be sure to scroll to the very last bit of this post to vote for next month’s project theme before you go! *Contains affiliate links. Please see my disclosure for more information.
STENCILLED ETCHED MIRROR USING ETCHING CREAM
HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL NEED
The very first thing I did was to give this thrift-store mirror a little spray paint love. I used Rustoleum Canyon Black.
The stencil design is found in the Silhouette Store and needs no editing.
I cut the stencil from vinyl and removed the center of the letters and leaves. Using transfer adhesive paper, I transferred the vinyl stencil to the center of the mirror.
Using a small brush, I applied an even coat of the glass etching cream over the stencil on the mirror and let stand for 5-6 minutes. Next, I removed the cream with a damp cloth. I wasn’t able to run water over the mirror as it had a paper backing, but the cloth did the trick.
Then, I removed the vinyl, leaving the etched pattern behind! At first, I was a little concerned that I’d not left the cream on long enough the etching does not show on wet glass – but once the mirror dried, I could see the design.
My etched glass mirror will be just perfect for my Thanksgiving display in a few weeks.
Now, we need YOUR help! Take the survey below and tell me what you want to Create with Me for December!
