First Project with Glass Etching

Its September already! Kids are back in school, there is a noticeable difference in the temperature and the days are getting shorter. I always considered September the calm before the "storm" of the holiday season.

I have a variety of projects to show, so I hope you'll be a frequent visitor!

Today's project is my first attempt at Glass Etching. I had made these glass blocks awhile ago, but used vinyl. I wasn't completely pleased with it, and wanted to try etching (as long as the vinyl was already on the glass block). The one thing gave me pause was how caustic the etching cream is. But I decided to jump in.

I used the Cricut Cartridge New Arrival for the Moon and Jasmine for Sweet Dreams. Here is the final result. I added a light and a stand.

All supplies - glass block, stand, bulb light with thumbwheel switch, etching cream and vinyl were purchased at Hobby Lobby.

I gave it to my son and his wife for the twins' nursery.

Thanks for stopping by!

Koala-t hugs,



  1. It came out great! I bet your son and his wife loved it, what a wonderfully soothing glow it must add to the baby's room!

  2. Where do you buy the stand for the block?
