Materials Needed:

  • basic wineglasses
  • heart stickers in a variety of sizes
  • 1-inch wide painter's tape
  • etching cream
  • foam brush
  • paper plate
  • sponge
  • sink with room-temperature water

Add Painter's Tape to Glass

Use painter's tape to cover the top few inches of the glass stem (Image 1). Apply small pieces of painter's tape to the inside of the glass (Image 2). Line up the tape with the rim of the glass (Image 3).

Apply Stickers to Glass

Apply the heart stickers in a random pattern all over the glass (Image 1). Use big hearts and small hearts to create any pattern you want (Image 2). Wherever you put a sticker, the glass will remain fully transparent and clear when finished.

Apply Etching Cream to Glass

Pour out a small amount of the etching cream onto a paper plate. Paint on the etching cream in a thick layer all over the glass (Image 1). Make sure to cover the whole glass and the stickers (Image 2). The thicker the layer, the better. Let sit for 15 minutes.
