Etched Glass Money Jugs

By Monday, December 10, 2012 ,

We’ve had these three glass 1 gallon milk jugs for awhile. Something found in our grandparent’s backyard. I love using them for spare change. Divides the coins up so it’s easier to roll and makes it very difficult to reach in and grab any dollars! But they were a bit plain……






Armour Etch Cream

Silhouette Cameo is handy but you could use your own vinyl stencil, hand-cut using an Xacto knife

Jugs, Jars, anything glass that will hold coins

Hot Glue Gun

Step 1: Made a 1, 2, 3 design using Silhouette Software and cut it out on vinyl using a Silhouette Cameo


Step 2: Applied the vinyl to my jug and wrapped any other exposed glass with cling wrap. (Etching cream will spread to other areas)


Step 3: Applied cream as per directions, left it on for 20-30 minutes. Wash off.


Wrapped twine around tops, hot gluing as I went.
