I found these spice jars while I was thrift store shopping the other day. I fell in love with the little wooden lids, PLUS they were only 99 cents each. My Mother accidentally broke my antique pepper shaker that I had and so I decided to turn these spice jars into my everyday salt and pepper shakers. I had some etching cream and settled on putting the classic “s” and “p” on them. Here is my tutorial on how to etch glass.
Glass etching is probably one of the easiest and quickest craft projects to complete. I think it took me less than ten minutes to do this project.
Here are the spice jars I got. I have never (or don’t recall) seeing any like this before. I put them in the washing machine to make sure they were clean.
I used Martha Stewart’s adhesive letter stencils which make this project SUPER easy. As you can tell by this photo I used them often. Make sure your glass is completely dry.
Once your stencil is in place, apply an ample amount of etching cream onto your surface. Wait 1-3 minutes and rinse the etching cream off under cold water. Remove the stencil.
Voila! It works in literally minutes.
I poured in my salt and pepper and these spice jars still had the rubber shaker lids with holes. These would make a fun gift or you can be greedy like me and keep them all for yourself!
