On Maker Monday this week, Amy Howard shows you how to make a variety of amazing gifts for the dads in our lives with a few simple tools. Whether you want to decorate a cheeseboard, a photo frame, or a hand towel, you can do it with the Decorate for Dads bundle.

In this week’s Maker Monday tutorial, Amy also shows you how to etch glass so that you can give Dad something really unique— whether that’s a stag-etched frame or a gorgeous glass pitcher he can use to stay cool on those hot summer days ahead.

You will also need a glass pitcher or another glass surface your father would prefer using.

How to Etch Glass for Your Father’s Day Gift

  1. Take your stencil off of its backing.
  2. Lay the stencil on your glass where you want it, making sure to press all the bubbles and wrinkles out.
  3. Take your artist brush and cut the bristles so that they are flat.
  4. Dip your brush in the Etching Cream and apply it to the stencil. Continue to apply a thick coat, moving your brush sideways and up and down. This will work the etching cream into the glass.
  5. Remove the stencil and wash off the glass. Your new stag pitcher (or whatever glass surface you created) is now ready to use!

Tell Dad You Love Him With a Great Gift
