Etched Glass



This is something I made for my mom awhile back but have never posted on my blog. I cut out the boat and wave design with my cricut onto vinyl then etched into the glass vase. Added some twine and rocks with the lucky bamboo plant! My mom doesn't have a green thumb so I had to give her something that is hard to kill! LOL!

The picture isn't the greatest but I don't have a very good setup to take pictures of glass so this was the best I could do for now.

Hope you like this unique project!

This gift is beautiful! You did a marvelous job etching this vase. I too gave one of these to my Mom for Mother's Day. I found a vase with her initial etched on it. So great minds think alike! Best, Curt
