You know how I have an obsession with glass? Wavey does, too. Being five years old, she believes that drinking milk from a real glass cup makes her fancy.
So, I got fancy.
I used clear laminating paper to create the stencil of the scallop and applied $2 sticker letters found in the scrapbooking aisle at the craft store.
I smudged on a generous amount of etching cream, but I wasn't careful about the drips and it went past the 'safe' area of the covering. Oh well...beginner's error.
After five minutes, I rinsed off the cream, peeled the adhesives, and voila! A cute little glass that reads, "Moo."
It's a bit imperfect and I can see where I didn't carefully apply the laminating paper well, but overall it was a fun 10 minute project that I'm sure will translate into many monogrammed glasses/jars/vases/votives in the future.
