I love taking a dollar store item and make it fancy! Add a little etching and vinyl to the glassware and you have something amazing! Let's learn how to make them.

Check out the video to see how to make these fun glasses.
The first stamp is to gather the supplies of the Dollar Tree glasses, vinyl, Etchall etching crème, my ghost cut files, and my cricut!
I used my NEW Haunt It! collection of SVG files to make these cutie ghost stencils out of vinyl out on my Cricut. Save the little ghosts, we will use them on small glasses!
Check out my cut files below - you can do so much more than just glasses, you can cut out all kinds of shapes!
Apply the stencil to the glass container and line the outside with the extra transfer tape to make a barrier.
Apply the etching crème to the stencil making sure to apply a ton of crème, which is no issue since the crème is reusable!
Let the crème sit for 10 minutes to let it etch and then wipe it off and place back into the container. Wash the crème off the glass in your sink with soap and water, do not remove the stencil until after the crème has all been washed off.
I transferred the eyes from the ghosts to apply to the etched ghosts, now they have eyes!
I love this spooky ghostly glass jar to use as a candy dish, candle holder, or just for fun!
What fun shape will you etch on your Dollar Tree Glass?
Now I have the left over vinyl ghosts I can create with, so I added them to some old etched jars I had left over from a candle project I made a couple years back, so I added the vinyl ghosts to them.
Check out the video on how I etched the glasses and made DIY candles in the video below.
I just love the look of these cute glasses, I can use them for candles, votives, or as shot glasses!
What fun Shape will you place on your glasses?
