Etched Casserole Dish

Have you seen the etched casserole dishes on Pinterest?  I have a friend who makes them for gifts all the time, but I never had - until recently.

Rather than re-create the wheel, I thought I would link up to a wonderful tutorial here.  The only things I did different were:

1.  I cut the name I used out of contact paper with my silhouette machine

2.  I scooped most of the etching cream back into the container before I rinsed the dish.  It can be re-used, so why rinse all that cream down the drain?

Lavender Tub Tip:  If you do cut out a name using a cutting machine, try to stick the contact paper on your dish with the letters still in tact - and then remove them.  Trust me, it works much better this way.  Trust me!

I found a set of 2 casserole dishes at Wal-mart for about $12.00, and etched them both for a gift.  I am sooo happy with the results, and this was super easy.  It was such fun, I think I might block off an entire day just to find glass objects in my house and then etch them.

Do give this a try.  I think you'll really enjoy it, and I know if you make them for gifts - your giftee will be absolutely delighted.

Thanks for stopping by the tub,

  1. This is one of my favorite things to do because we received one for our wedding way back when and it was my favorite gift, to this day! I also recently personalized some glasses for a friends wedding, with Script saying things like "Faith", "Hope", "Love", etc - so when she throws a party, everyone can use classy glasses and still keep track of them :) And, YES, I emphasize your tip of scraping off the excess for re-use! Love it :)


I LOVE your ideas and comments. Thanks for taking the time :)
