I enjoy taking something that no longer has use and making it into “something else”. Old glass bottles, a little acid etching cream, and that “something else” can end up attractive. Here’s how I do it:
Cut a design out of clear contact paper. In this case, I traced a fern and cut it out.

I placed the contact paper on a glass jar that had contained sea salt.
I covered the entire jar in Armour Etching Cream, available at any craft supply store. In the case of the green juice glasses at the top of this post, I did the reverse. The fern design is etched. With the clear bottle above, all but the fern design is etched.
After 5 or minutes, I washed off the etching cream. (A friend saves the cream to re-use. I tried that and just ended up with a mess). I added a pump to complete my soap dispenser.
Here is a wine bottle I use to water plants.
Have you tried etching glass? What projects have you completed?
