Supplies to Make an Etched Glass Candy Jar | One Mile Home Style

Lidded Glass Jar (I picked this one up from Michaels)
Glass Etching Cream (I used Armour Etch)
Paint Brush
Painter's Tape
Scrapbook Letter Stickers
Candy of your choice

The first thing I did was tape off the top and bottom sections of the jar, making a wide stripe around the middle of the jar, just tall enough to fit my letter.

Then, I applied a nice even coat of the the glass etching cream to the entire stripe, being sure to fully cover the letter as well. Once it set for the allotted time, I rinsed it in cool water and peeled off the tape and sticker to reveal my custom etching. (Side note: Please read the instructions for the etching cream carefully before you use it, you don't want to get it on your skin, or anything you don't want etched for that matter.)
