Oil and Vinegar Bottles with etchall® etching creme

Hi Creative Friends!

It's that time of year!  Time to bring in the harvest!  Around here we grow lots of tomatoes and basil.  One of our favorite ways to eat them is a Caprese salad with layers of tomatoes and fresh mozarella topped with basil.  And, of course, they must be dressed with some vinegar and olive oil. 

I thought it would be nice to label the oil and vinegar bottles.  It adds a nice personalized touch for a gift for friends or your own table. 

I bought these bottles at Cost Plus World Market.  They were very inexpensive ($3.99)  And, I used some letter stencils from DecoArt®.

Wash and dry the bottles with soapy water.  Check the glass on the bottles and use the best side for etching.  These bottles had a few bubbles in the glass and you will want to avoid those.

Apply the self-adhesive stencils.  Use the etchall® squeegee to adhere the stencils to the glass.  Then, mask around the stencil with tape and added etchall® etching creme.  Wait  15 minutes and scrape as much of the creme off as you can and put it back in the jar. It's reusable!  Wash the remaining creme off with running water before removing the stencil; then rinse the bottle again.  Throw away the tape and place the stencil back on the plastic for next time.

 And, here they are - ready for the salad!
Oil and Vinegar Bottles
These would make a great hostess gift filled with your favorite balsamic vinegar and EVOO!  Tie pretty ribbons around the necks, add some tomatoes and basil from your garden and they will be very happy to see you!

Don't you want to label all your glass bottles now?  I think I want to try spice and herb jars next! 
Happy etching with etchall®!
