Candy Jar Etching

Sooo I have something to admit.
I have a HUGE weakness.
I. LOVE. Easter. Candy.
I mean LOVE.
Sooooo although I know it is a little early for Easter decor...
I couldn't stop myself from making an Easter candy jar...
{because lets face it, it was the perfect excuse to stock up on Robin's Eggs and Jellybeans!}

Andddd I had a chance to try out a technique I have been meaning to try for some time now!

Sweet and simple.
Just my style.
And I bet you would have never guessed that my sweet candy jar started out as a pickle jar....
Okay so maybe you would have :o)
But and simple---YES PLEASE!

Cutest pickle jar around right?!?

And yes I had to decorate the top with scrapbook paper and ribbon...

And Here is the "How To" part for the etching.

Clean out your pickle jar.
Cut a vinyl image {I used my silhouette cutter to do this part} or use a stencil and tape it to your jar.

Paint a thick layer of the etch on the glass.
And rinse off in a few minutes... {although the directions say 60 seconds}
You may wish to repeat the etching part twice.... I did because I wanted the image more noticeable...
perhaps I should have left the etch on longer?

Anyways, I like the look.
Not to obvious but festive at the same time.

What do you think?
Do I have you thinking about your favorite Easter Candy now?!?

And I must give all inspiration credit to the AMAZING Darby over at Life with the Hawleys!

She etched her pyrex------talk about clever right?!?!?

I am linking up my project at some of these amazing parties---be sure to check them out for some amazing inspiration!!!!

Well I have to admit I have a weakness for Easter Candy too- especially Jelly Beans when it is decision making time ;)
AND Thanks for the jar etching how-to... I feel scrap-ier, craftier, and happier already!

Oh my gosh Easter candy is the best candy around! I could never be on a diet in the spring because I'm obsessed with Easter candy. Robins eggs, those sweet tarts shaped as bunnies & chics, cadberry eggs, reeses peanut butter eggs. YUM! Oh my gosh I want some now....

Great way to recycle jars! I have used the etching cream before and the last time I used it, I left it overnight. It came out great but I did have to scrub it off with an old toothbrush. I always have trouble getting the edges of my stencil down tight so that the cream doesn't bleed under and mess up the whole thing. Any tips?

I love this! And I love that you did it with a pickle jar! I never would have guessed! I bake lots of bread and have been looking for some why to store all of the different types of flours I have been accumulating. This is a perfect way to store and designate! Thanks!
