Decorative cocktail glasses make the perfect final touch to a mixed drink. Now that I am out of college, I have been looking for some new ones to stock my bar, as red solo cups don’t fit my style. After looking around and finding nothing I was in love with, I decided to make my own. Using a simple polka dot design and this etching cream, I was able to create the perfect new cocktail glasses with ease.

What you’ll need:
-Cocktail glasses 
-Etching cream
-Stickers (I used round stickers that were 1/2, 3/4, and 1 1/4 inches)
-Foam paint brush
-Rubber gloves
-Rubbing Alcohol1111
1. Rub each glass with the rubbing alcohol to remove any stains.

3. Paint the etching cream onto each glass.

4. To ensure an even etching, move the etching cream around with the foam brush every minute to pop any air bubbles. Let the etching cream sit on the glass for at least 5 minutes. Once done, wash the etching cream off the glass.
