Do you need a beautiful vase for flowers? This is a great project for taking an inexpensive dollar-store vase to a beautiful expensive look. You can etch a vase with a simple design without the need for any additional fancy tools like a cutting machine, dies, or punches. The result is very on-trend and stylish. All you need is the vase, a starter kit from etchall, a paper trimmer, and a pair of scissors.

***Before adding vinyl to and glass project, be sure to clean your glass with rubbing alcohol. If you don’t have any, hand sanitizer is the next best option.
The etchall starter kit provides you with vinyl. I took that vinyl and cut it into strips using a paper trimmer. Starting with 1/4″ strips and then 1/8″ strips I arranged them on the vase in a random fashion following the rule that I needed to make triangles out of the negative spaces.
Using a foam brush, I applied the etchall creme to the entire surface. I used a generous amount because it doesn’t go to waste. Setting a timer for 7 minutes, I then added a bit more creme to make sure I had full coverage and set the timer for an additional 7 minutes. Overall the creme was on the vase for more than 15 minutes. The entire etching process happens in just 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, using the same foam brush I removed the etchall creme and put it back into the container. Then I washed the vase with water and removed the vinyl.
***I discarded the vinyl, foam brush, and plastic surface I was working on.
