After seeing her decorating style, I found lots of glass, Fleur de lis, and bronze wrought iron. So I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a beautiful footed cake stand and decided I would create their last initial in a Fleur de lis and etch it onto the cake stand lid.
This is a very simple project and something I learned to do in 7th grade art class. First, you clean the glass. Next, put masking tape over the glass. Trace your pattern onto the masking tape and then use an exacto knife to cut away the part of the tape that you want glass etched.
Place glass etching cream (found at the hobby store) on the glass and leave it for about 10 minutes. I know it says 5, but to make it really stand out, I've found 10-15 works better and it doesn't eat through the masking tape. Then wash it off and clean your glass thoroughly.
