What a cool way to dress up a plain glass jar! I have saved some that mushrooms came in that would look very classy like this. I don't have an etching tool, but I think I can borrow one just to see what it's like. These would make awesome little gift jars filled with bath salts or small candies.

So this is how they do it. I think I'm going to enjoy this new technique I've learnt. I wish there was a DIY technique for this but I guess I'll have to purchase the etching tool which is worth it. I love the look of these patterns on the glass and how it transforms ordinary glass.

These are so pretty. I want to make a set to hold the extra materials that have been cluttering my craft studio desk.

I think I'm going to make these to hold my makeup brushes! I like these a lot better than painted mason jars. These look much more elegant and pretty!
