Cricut glass etching is a great way to make gifts amazing. I knew that I could figure this out with my Cricut Machine so I taught myself how to etch glass.

My DIY cricut glass etching method looks just as good as any laser etched glass products.

I really enjoy etching glass with and using my Cricut to create stencils to etch the glass. Above all, my Cricut has been everything I needed it to be, and now its a laser cutting and laser system too.

And by now we all know how magical the Cricut is and the fact that there is so many things you can do with this beautiful machine!

What do I need for Cricut Glass Etching?

And you can use painters or masking tape to block off areas that you don’t want the etching cream to touch. 

In the past, I have used Cricut etching, to make drinking glasses, wine glasses and a variety of materials. 

Firstly, you want to start by cleaning the area to be etched with alcohol, well you can do this after you have created your design in Cricut Design Space. 

Once you have your design and clean glass, place the adhesive vinyl on your cutting mat and load it into your Cricut machine to cut.

When it is done unload the mat, and weed your vinyl, and place it on your glass surface. 

Most importantly, you want to make sure you wear gloves for this part. Using a paintbrush, brush on a layer of etching cream.

Wait for 3 to 5 mins and then rinse with warm water to reveal your etched design.

Now you can, show super easy it is to etch glass.

My first Cricut glass etching project of this type was a wine glass I made for my mom for a birthday. This was years and years ago. 

Cricut has changed a ton since then. For instance, at the time I had the original Cricut and I didn’t have the ability to upload my own design or access to Cricut Acess.

Now you do! And there are a ton of premade designs you can choose to make your project pop.
