etched bottle

I can’t believe how well etchall etches the smallest details. I am making a shaker jar for popcorn seasoning and I etched the wording onto the glass. The word popcorn has the first “o” replaced with a piece of popcorn that has the smallest outline and it etched perfectly!

cricut joy

When cutting smaller pieces of vinyl, I like to use my Cricut Joy. It can sit right on my craft table. While the vinyl is cutting, clean the glass jar with rubbing alcohol to remove any dirt or grease.

If you would like to use the SVG I created, it is available for free in the store [popcorn seasoning]

transfer tape

After weeding away the type, I applied transfer tape and burnished it down well with my thumb. Be extra careful of all the small pieces. The full size of the image is only 2″ across so those letter centers and the dot on the i are very small.

ready to etch

The jar is ready to etch. I like using inexpensive paint brushes to apply the etchall creme. I apply the creme and set a timer for 15 minutes. That’s all it takes to etch the glass.

remove vinyl

After the 15 minutes pass, I remove the etchall creme and return it to its container because it is reusable. For small projects like this, I just clean off any remaining creme with a baby wipe. In the image above I am removing the vinyl. After all the vinyl is removed and discarded, I once again clean the etching with a baby wipe and then follow up with rubbing alcohol. I find burnishing the etched image with a dry cloth really enhances the image.

The popcorn seasoning is a homemade mixture, it’s sweet n salty. The ingredient measurements below are perfect for filling this bottle.


  • 2 Tbsp of sugar
  • 2 Tbsp of brown sugar
  • 1/2 Tbsp salt

Mix it well and place it into the bottle.

with popcorn

After making microwave air-popped popcorn, I pour a bit of melted butter and finish off with the popcorn seasoning.

This would make such a cute and easy gift. Combine the seasoning jar with some Amish popcorn kernels and a cute bowl. I bet anyone would appreciate this delicious gift.

rubbing alcohol

Remove all the labels from the glass and clean it with rubbing alcohol. The higher the content of alcohol the better. In a pinch, you can use hand sanitizer to clean with.

Cricut Joy

For the size of this project, I was able to cut the vinyl on a Cricut Joy. I used a free design and font in the design program for the Vinyl Sticker design. (Leaf Embellishment #M3A9A159F) If you don’t have a cutting machine you can cut vinyl by hand or use a paper punch design.

cut vinyl

After the cut is finished, weed away the design.

apply vinyl

When I apply vinyl, I fold the vinyl in half to mark the middle. Then I apply it to the candle, middle first, and smooth it out from there. Wrinkles in the vinyl are OK as long as the design is smooth and sealed against the glass.

applied creme

Apply the etching creme generously to the design. Let it sit for 15 minutes. Then remove the creme and replace it in the jar to use again. Wash the design and remove the vinyl. I use a baby wipe when the design is small enough and then clean the glass with rubbing alcohol.

finished etching

Here is the result of the etching.

ribbon and wax

To finish off the look of the candle, I applied rubbing wax to the design in silver to enhance the design and wrapped a coordinating ribbon around the neck of the glass container.

How to Etch Glass

It is easy to etch glass with the right tools. Learn how in this tutorial.

with Etchall

finished salt and pepper

Etching glass is a very simple process given the right tools. I enjoy working with Etchall Etching Creme. One reason is that Etchall is reusable so a small jar lasts a long time. Making these Salt and Pepper shakers was simple and fast but the result is fantastic. I wanted to make these for myself but they would make a great housewarming gift or hostess gift too.

with alcohol spray

Before you begin any glass etching project, you need to make sure the glass surface is clean and clear. It is best to use rubbing alcohol to clean your surface.

cricut maker

Cutting the vinyl, I used a Cricut Maker. In Design Space I used the Cricut font and typed the two letters I needed with space between them. Before cutting them out, I made sure the height and width fit the front of the shakers.

vinyl in place

I centered each letter on the front of the shakers. For this application, I didn’t need to use transfer paper but if your design is more detailed, you will find it helpful. See the video tutorial below for application tips and centering the vinyl.

with etchall creme

I applied a generous amount of etching creme to each shaker. There is no need to worry about using too much since it is reusable. Always follow the manufacturer’s directions for use. Etchall works in 15 minutes of application.

With a bit of ribbon added these are ready to fill or give as a gift.

How to Etch Celebratory Champagne Glasses

These basic champagne glasses from the Dollar Store were given an upgrade with Etchall Etching Cream and then decorated with Alcohol Inks. They make the perfect pair for celebrating a special occasion or for everyday use. You could change the color combination to suit your needs like school colors for a college graduation party, or for wedding colors. 

This post and photos contain affiliate links. If you purchase something through any link, I will receive a small commission at no extra charge to you.
Any supplies used may be given to me free of charge, however, all projects and opinions are my own.



To begin, remove any labels and clean the glasses using rubbing alcohol.

Then cover the desired area (the stem) with etchall Etching Creme, wait 15 minutes, remove excess back to the container, and then wash.

The etching is done.
The result is very elegant, and you could stop right here.

The alcohol inks I chose to use.

Turn the glass upside down.
Drop a small drop of ink at the stem of the glass and let it run down.
Continue until you like the look.

Here is an up-close look at the glass.
Notice I put a “ring” around the top of the stem in silver.

I purposely didn’t let the ink cover anywhere near the drinking lip of the glasses.
I covered them in a plastic bag and taped it in place.
Placing it in my spray box, I sprayed it with a sealer and let it dry.
(you may need a few light coats)

Remove the taped bag and your glasses are ready to celebrate with!
