Waiting For Daffodils

For a while now I have wanted to play around with etching glass. I think it's a wonderful way to personalize cookie jars, storage containers, and vases. Last week I finally did it. I actually managed to start and finish a project. I adorned little 7 oz. beer bottles with L E N T E, the Dutch word for spring. The "How To" can be found on my other blog, Dutch Girl Originals, my show case for all things crafty.

I am very happy with the result, if I do say so myself. Now all I need is daffodils, my ultimate spring flower. Until I find some, fake Dollar Tree daisies will have to do.

Of course now I want a set of vases for every season. There's only eight bottles to a case, though. We're just going to have to drink for the cause...


  1. Looks really cool. I have try that. I have quite few nice looking youghurt glaces I think I will use. Keep u posted.

  2. Easy as pie! Looking forward to seeing yours.

  3. Oh awesome! We have to hang out some time so you can show me how to be crafy (and have patience!)

  4. So fun! I haven't played with my etching supplies in a while but you've just given me an idea of what to do with some of my empty wine bottles!
