How to Make a Monogrammed Glass

Wendell T. WebberWendell T. Webber

Expecting overnight guests? Make their stay more comfortable with bathroom amenities -- a toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, and cotton swabs -- presented thoughtfully in a monogrammed glass. Leave it bedside with a personal note.


HOW TO:

1. Wash and dry a clear drinking glass.

2. First make the letter stencil by taping contact paper to a cutting mat. On top of the contact paper, tape a pre-made stencil of the initial of your choice.

3. Trace it, then cut out the letter with a sharp X-acto knife and discard, leaving only the contact paper template.

4. Peel the contact paper from its backing and position on the glass where you want the monogram; smooth out any air bubbles.

5. Using a small paintbrush, apply the etching cream inside the template and let set according to instructions.

6. Rinse the glass thoroughly with warm water, then peel off the contact paper.


TOOLS & TIPS:
Wear rubber gloves and long sleeves when using etching cream. Work in a well-ventilated area.
