Glass Etched Soap Bottles

You may have heard us refer to the original Occasionally Crafty girl, our mom! She was always working on something as we were growing up. I don't think Valerie or I took full advantage of everything that was available to us as kids, but as you can see we both craft a lot now! 
So it shouldn't surprise you that when we get together with our Mom we usually end up crafting! While Valerie was in Chicago visiting our Dad, my Mom and brother came to visit us. When we were shopping some after Christmas sales, we came across these glass bottles with metal pour spouts. She mentioned that they'd be great for dish soap and we both thought of how we could decorate them!

Before she went home we got to work designing our bottles! I used a circle background image to create the effect of bubbles for my bottle.


Use the vinyl as a stencil and paint the open spots with glass etching cream. Be generous, but cautious because anywhere the cream touches it will etch! Wait 5 minutes, rinse off the cream and then peel off the vinyl! Voila!


Here's how it looks with soap!

My mom has a lot of apples and cherries in her kitchen, so we did a mix of vinyl and glass etching!

I love simple crafts that bring a little personality to your every day living! I smile (just a little more) every time I do dishes!

  1. Hi.. What kind of vinyl did you use? Is it something easily found at a craft store or more of a specialty or glass store kind of thing?

    1. Hi Liza! I used regular vinyl. I order mine off of Amazon, and since it's being used as a stencil any color works. Let me know if you want the Amazon link!

    1. Both my sister and I have silhouette cameos. I've had a silhouette for over 5 years now and originally got it because it offered a lot more customizable features than the cricut. I loved that it didn't need cartridges and I could use almost any font and shape I could find. I still love my machine but am not familiar with what changes circuit has made to its machines.

    1. My favorite use for it is on casserole dishes to put a name on it so it gets returned if you lend it out! :)
