Do you have a man in your life who is tricky to shop for? Yeah, me too. In thinking about what to get my husband for Father’s Day, I decided to get him a nice set of drinking glasses (since all of ours have broken… I’ll let you take a guess as to how that might happen in our house. ;) That seemed a little bit… simple. So I wanted to crank it up a notch and add a monogram. It turned out to be super easy! These monogrammed drinking glasses would make a perfect gift for Father’s Day, Christmas, birthdays… even teacher gifts!

The process is really simple, though I would suggest practicing first, before using the item that you want to gift to someone.
2. Apply the etching cream evenly. After taking this picture, I added a little more to even it out a bit.
3. Leave it on for 15 minutes – don’t do less than that. Then rinse the cream off completely and peel off the sticker.
**Edited to add: after using these glasses for a few months, I’d recommend washing them several times before gifting them, if possible. The monograms look much smoother after a few washings!
**Another edit: after years of use, the monogram outlasted the glasses themselves! They never wore off – the glasses broke before the monograms ever even flaked. A very inexpensive but high end looking result!
This was so easy, I now want to glass etch all.the.things.
