DIY Monogrammed Drinking Glasses
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!

Awhile back, I was sent this great set of Martha Stewart paints and stencils like these that I used for this project. I remembered that in that set was some Martha Stewart Glass Etch Cream.
The process is really simple, though I would suggest practicing first, before using the item that you want to gift to someone.
1. Stick the adhesive stencil to the glass surface.
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.
