DIY Etched Glass Canister Labels: An Easy to follow DIY Tutorial
Hello there friends! Happy Friday. I want to share with you a project that I’ve been wanting to do forever! I love the look of etched glass. I’ve seen tons of projects using it and thought it would be the perfect technique to use on canisters. I recently picked up some Ikea canister jars and have been using them to store all sorts of things. To stay organized, I decided to DIY some Etched Glass Canister Labels on the the front of the jar.
Etched Glass Canister Labels are a great and unique way to label your canisters giving them a clean and fresh look.
I love the look of glass jars.
They are so great for storage and with a little etched glass canister label, you’ve got cute little canisters perfect for anything!
I picked up these great little glass jars at Ikea (of course) for less than $4.00 a piece. I am sure you could find similar jars at your favorite thrift store too.
I must share, I almost just stopped right here. I really liked the way the canisters looked with the vinyl labels. That’s another option for you if you are looking for a way to label your canisters.
But I continued with the etched glass and I love the way that turned out just as much.
Labeling them was really simple. After washing them out really good. I carefully placed my stencil on the glass. Then, using a small paint brush, I painted on a good coat of etching cream.
Before the etching cream was completely dry, I peeled off the stencil to clean up any spots that may have bled under the vinyl.
I allowed them to dry for several hours and then washed them again before using them.
I am so happy with the way they turned out. They have such a clean look that they can easily be placed on the counter or in the pantry.

These are too cute!
I see the appeal of the vinyl version, but just adore, adore the etched glass finished jars! Perfection!
A very neat idea. I have so many random glass jars that I use for storage and I really like the idea of etching labels on them.
These turned out so nice, I want to try them too!
Clever use of the existing vinyl!
Love how they turned out! Such a clean looking and pretty presentation.
Thanks so much!
I’ll be featuring your project tomorrow during the link party. Thank you so much for linking up!
Love this! I just bought a Cameo and I think this may be one of my first projects!
Where did you get the vinyl labels? Were they also from Ikea?
What font did you use for the canisters?
I believe it’s typewriter font.
