A touch of winter white is easy to mimic on etched glass ornaments.

What You Need:

Choose any color or design for these frosty ornaments.
  • Clear glass ornament
  • White vinegar
  • 1/4-inch-wide masking tape
  • White tube-style paint
  • Star stickers
  • Latex gloves
  • Etching cream
  • Paintbrush
  • Beaded extension chain
  • Sprig of greenery


1. Wash ornament with hot water and white vinegar. Avoid touching the areas to be etched. Use paint and/or masking tape to make designs. To make star shapes, press on star stickers. Rub tape and stickers to adhere to surface. Allow the paint to dry.

2. Put on latex gloves. Paint the ornament with etching cream following the manufacturer's directions. Leave the etching cream on for the recommended time.
