A flurry of snowflakes etched into a lovely glass vase are as unique as the ones in nature.
- Choice of tall glass hurricane vase
- Choice of glass candlestick
- Clear drying permanent glue
- Three vinyl or plastic snowflake stencils
- Repositionable spray adhesive or dry scrapbook adhesive
- Utility gloves
- Sponge brush
- Etching cream (Shannon used Armour Etch)
- Cloth or paper towels
- Artificial snow (optional)
- Use glue to adhere candlestick centered on bottom of hurricane vase. Let dry.
- Place snowflake stencils in desired pattern on side of vase. Use a small amount of spray adhesive or dry scrapbook adhesive on the back of each stencil and press firmly to the glass to keep stencils temporarily in place.
- Wearing gloves, use the sponge brush to apply a thick layer of etching cream over the open area on each stencil. Following the manufacturer’s instructions, leave the cream on for the recommended time. (Shannon left it on for about 5-10 min.) Then peel the stencils off and wash remaining cream off glass. Wipe vase with a cloth or paper towel to dry.
- If desired, fill vase with artificial snow, then display.
CRAFTER’S NOTE: Shannon drew her own snowflakes and used her die cut machine to cut them out of vinyl, making snowflake stencils. You can do the same or use premade snowflake or other holiday stencils from the craft store.
