Glass Etched Vase Using My Silhouette

I will show you how to make this pretty glass etched vase!

Don’t you love these pink peonies? I got these for my birthday and decided they needed to be put in a spruced-up vase.

But I didn’t have a spruced-up vase so thought I should DIY one.

I finally tried the glass etching kit that I got with my Silhouette Cameo.

It’s so easy to make a glass etched vase! Who knew?!

Here is the glass etching starter kit I got from Silhouette to get me started on my project. You can buy it online or at craft store like Michael’s.

It comes with everything you need…all you need to supply is the glass. A vase is the perfect beginner’s choice I thought.

  1. In your Silhouette software, type, print and cut the words you want on the clear vinyl.
  2. Pull away the design you want etched with your hook tool.
  3. Carefully stick the stencil you just made on your vase. The adhesive backing allows you to stick it easily to glass.

(I know it’s difficult to see right now…but wait!)

4. Add the etching cream for no more than 60 seconds and remove it (you can add the excess back to the jar if you’d like). Wipe off excess with a paper towel and wash the glass.

5. When you peel away the vinyl stencil, you’re left with a beautiful glass etched vase!

I etched the word “fleurs”.

I’m in heaven with the way the beautiful etching turned out.

If I knew it was this easy, I would have attempted it much sooner!!

  1. You did a fabulous job! And this was your first go ’round? I find that curved surfaces can be tricky sometimes, but yours is flawless! Love it!

  2. Jamie,
    Thanks so much for linking up this cute DIY project at my Show and Share Party. I would love it if you would add my party name (with a link to my blog) with the other party names at the bottom of your post…thanks:)


  3. Omg, I love this!! Love your peonies, of course, as well. I laughed a bit when I read your post because I have a closet full of kits of this sort that I’ve never opened. (Never even unwrapped my glue gun!) Your explanation makes it so much less intimidating. My one question is about the cutting – are you actually cutting out the design with a scissors, a knife or the hook tool? I would imagine that’s the only thing limiting the complexity of the design? Thanks for sharing!!


    1. Oh sorry that wasn’t clear, Lory! I made the words, printed and cutted them out on vinyl using my Silhouette Cameo machine. Essentially making it an adhesive stencil. Then I put the etching cream over the stencil. I’m literally a Silhouette newbie so if I can do this, so can you 😉

  4. I really like how you etched your vase. As a matter of fact, I really, really like the vase itself. Any chance you remember where you found it?
