How to Glass Etch a Lucky Shamrock Mug

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner so you might want to make this Lucky Shamrock Mug now to get ready. Why is it lucky? Because there is one four-leaf shamrock among all the three-leaf ones. So just like in nature, there is luck in finding it! Can you spot it? And of course, the design is on a beer mug. Don’t you drink green beer on St. Patrick’s Day?

I want to thank Cricut and Etchall for providing materials used in this post.

Directions:

mug and rubbing alcohol

Download the free SVG file and size it to your mug. If using the mug from the Dollar Tree, I found 10″ wide for the design to work well. I didn’t use one of the shamrocks. Make sure to clean the surface of the mug with rubbing alcohol.

Wrap it around the mug in your desired location.
I liked the top rim of the mug for my design. I found wrapping around the mug to be a bit more difficult to get it straight then I anticipated.
Remove any air bubbles and rub the vinyl down really well.

Cover the design with Etchall cream using your paintbrush and allow it to sit for 15 minutes.


Remove any excess cream and put it back in the jar. Then wash the mug in warm water, you can also use soap.
