Project Description

Transform a little glass jar/basket in to an adorable Easter decoration using etchall® dip ‘n etch. Dip ‘n etch is a re-usable etching liquid with the consistency of water. Use by “dipping” (submerging) glass objects to create an overall etched surface.



Follow these step by step instructions and check out the video tutorial. You can click the thumbnail pictures to see a larger picture.

Your jar is decorated for Easter and ready to be filled with candy or used as votive holder!

Happy Easter & Happy Crafting!

    Cute. Can I use my own stickers for this project?

      Best answer I can give is…you could try. Here’s the deal. If the stickers are plain paper, my guess is the etching liquid (which is the consistency of water) would soak through the paper, get to the adhesive and likely etch the glass (because the stickers would be in the liquid 15 minutes). But I’m thinking, if the stickers were coated (e.g., glossy paper) or even vinyl (like those puff stickers), they should work. I may have to look for stickers this weekend and give this a try!

    glass etching is not something I’d try, but looks fun.

    Found this via your giveaway and I’m so glad I did! I tried etching once and enjoyed it. This looks fantastic! I really like the idea of reusable liquid. I need to remember this technique for later!

    glass etching is not something I’d be interested in, but I’ll look for other ideas.

      Hi Melissa! Thanks for your comment (and for noticing my glasses! LOL!). I couldn’t find them that day so I had to craft “naked” LOL

    The only stickers I have found and have used for years with this application of Dip are the

    JEJE Produkt Peel Off stickers.

    Try and see what you think. If you find others, please let me know!

    Your project is not only cute but has put me in the Easter Spirit!!

    It was so much fun taking your class to make wind chimes using Etchall. The Etchall dip ‘ etch looks equally as much fun. Thanks for the demo Joe!
