Glass Etched Lemonade Pitcher

I’ve been imagining this Glass Etched Lemonade Pitcher in my head for weeks.  I found this awesome glass pitcher at Hobby Lobby – ON CLEARANCE!  I’ve been wanting to glass etch a pitcher for cookouts and such but couldn’t justify spending $25 – $30 on the pitcher.  {Especially since my Little Guy would probably break it anyway!}  So when I spotted this, I knew I could finally do it!

 Wanna make your own Glass Etched Lemonade Pitcher?

Here’s what you need:
Vinyl stencil
Armour Glass Etch
Sponge brush
Glass pitcher

Glass etching is SUPER easy!  I used my Cameo to cut out a vinyl stencil for the pitcher.

My pitcher was 3.5 inches wide by 11 inches tall.  So I made sure to keep the font and picture within those limits.  I chose Bodoni MT for the font.  And the cheery, fresh lemon image is Dear Lizzy Lemons C00023_27175.

Once the vinyl was cut, I carefully removed all the letters and the inside of the lemon with my Silhouette hook.

Carefully, detach the vinyl from the backing and place on the pitcher.  (You can move the “middles” once you have the rest of it well-placed.)

Some of the middles have been replaced and some have not.

Make sure you get all the bubbles out of the vinyl so the Armour Etch doesn’t bleed into areas other than that which you want to stencil.

Glop on the Armour Etch.  I usually let mine sit for about ten minutes after it has been applied.

After it has sat for ten minutes, rinse off the etching cream under warm water.  (It will look like it didn’t work until you take off the stencil.)

Dry thoroughly so the etching shows up well and that’s it!

I took some pictures with lemonade in the pitcher but you couldn’t see the etching.  Looks refreshing though!

Before you even ask, I do not have a special lemonade recipe.  This is just Crystal Light!!  =)

So what do you do when life hands you lemons?  {wink wink}

    Love how you took a rather boring, ho-hum pitcher and made it unique Jill! I think I’d be stenciling & etching everything in my home if I had a Cameo LOL

    That turned out so pretty! The pitcher was amazing already, but you made it even better!
    I’m hosting a linky party “One Creative Weekend” at I’d love for you to visit and link up this idea and/or anything else you’d like to share.
