Polka-Dot Etched Margarita Glass


I just couldn't resist this project when I saw it over at Christmas With The Cricut!!!  What a fab idea to make a polka-dot pattern on stemware!  I've seen similar glasses that cost a FORTUNE!!!  But not these...these cheapo margarita glasses are from Target (or somewhere comparable...I bought them a LONG time ago!).  But now they look like they came from Pier 1 or somewhere oh-so-ultra-cool.  :)

In keeping with traditional Christmas colors, I'm just picturing them filled with a yummy, frozen strawberry margarita (red) with a little lime wedge (green) on the edge....how cute!  And wouldn't a set of these glasses and some custom wine charms just make the perfect gift???  :)

Christmas With The Cricut has a great tutorial on making these (see link above) but here's just a quick run-down of what I did:

1.  Cut 1" circles out of vinyl (contact paper) 15 times from the Cricut Plantin Schoolbook cartridge using the Roly Poly feature...this cuts the circles into rings.

2.  Adhere rings randomly onto glass, being careful to smooth any ridges.

3.  Apply etching cream to inside of rings, being careful not to go outside the ring edge.

4.  Wait 15 minutes then rinse and wipe with water.  Remove rings and wash with soap and water.  Ta-da!

Thanks for looking!  :)
