Like most nights ;) I was flipping through the latest holiday catalog from Pottery Barn when I stopped to look at their personalized ornaments. I was drawn to the simplicity of their glass etched ball... you know the one:
And, because this is how my brain works, of course I thought "I can totally do that myself! Tonight!"
And so I did. :)
I had half a box of these plain glass ornaments down in the basement, left over from a project a few years ago. You can buy a box of 12 for just $4 or $5 at most craft stores around the holidays, less if you catch them on sale.
I grabbed some plain contact paper and cranked out a small "V" on the Cricut.
You'll want to use the outside of the cutout, not the cutout itself, because you'll be putting etching cream in the negative space.
I didn't take a picture of the etching cream on it, but you can use your imagination.
Put a thick layer of cream over anything you want to be etched. Let it sit for about 5 minutes.
Rinse off the cream with water and remove the contact paper.
Then put it on your tree and feel good about yourself. :)
10 minutes, start to finish.
