How to repurpose your wine bottles into etched glass lanterns

This tutorial will show you how to use your Cricut to turn repurposed wine bottles into beautiful etched glass lanterns!

If you love repurposing things as much as I do, you’ll love making this project! Glass etching is also a cool permanent way to personalize items to give to friends and family.

How to etch glass with your Cricut

Etching glass is achieved by using etching cream. The Cricut will be used to make a stencil and hide certain parts of the glass.

If you want to know everything about glass etching, you can see this post that will tell you the do’s and don’ts and everything you need to know.

I was an attendee at the craftfest and this wine bottle project was my favorite of all the projects. I live in Minnesota and ran all over the place trying to find it. Searched on my tablet, which all led to Canada. Long story short, they do NOT sell that product in the USA. Blows my mind and I just don’t understand it. I even called RUSTOLEUM but got no answer as to why. I’ve seen all the warnings on the bottles of Armor Etch and is why I was hoping to use the Rustoleum. I was just wondering if you know why it’s not sold in the USA?

Thanks, Linda P.

Hi Linda! I'm very surprised. I really thought it was sold in the US (It's usually us Canadian that have problems finding products here in Canada!) Maybe you could ask in the Craftfest Facebook group if someone has any suggestions other than Armour Etch for the US? Sorry that I can't help you more.
