DIY Father’s Day Mug is perfect for the men on your shopping list! Skip the tie this Father’s Day and show dad that he’s the boss with this funny and FUN DIY Father’s Day Mug project! Glass etching is so easy and the possibilities are endless on any flat, clear glass surface. Plus clear glass items are ABUNDANT at the dollar store!
Some other glass etching ideas:
Gift a set of four glasses to a bride and groom with their new monogram
Etch your name at the bottom of your casserole serving dishes this summer so you’ll always be sure to get yours back
Hole reinforcement stickers (found at any office supply store) make perfect templates for polka dots for glass etching
(FYI – This is not a project for kiddos to try. The etching cream can be dangerous as per the label and craft knifes are very sharp!)
Glass etching cream (found at craft store)
Clear glass mug (found at the dollar store)
Craft knife (x-acto knife)
Be sure to clean your glass piece thoroughly to remove any fingerprints.
Free hand or trace your design onto the sticker sheet
Place sticker onto glass ensuring there are no air bubbles
CAREFULLY cut around the design
Remove the inside portion of the sticker.
Apply a generous amount of etching cream to the inside of the design. Remember anything the etching cream touches it will be frosted so be sure to stay within the sticker!
Let etching cream sit for about 5 minutes
Under running water rinse off the etching cream and remove the sticker.
Dry thoroughly and present your DIY etched moustache mug to your favorite dad!
