Wow, only 10 days until Christmas!
With the kids in school, the days really fly by. I’ve done most of my shopping, but I need to pull every thing out and make sure we have everything we need. The kids are going to Grandmas this weekend, so I will use that time to finish everything up.
Today, I want to share an easy gift idea for an Etched Glass Olive Oil Dispenser.
After all, who couldn’t use a pretty Olive Oil Dispenser?
I actually have been looking around for an olive oil dispenser for myself, but I wasn’t really finding anything I liked.
Everything I found was either too small, decorated not to my taste, came in an oil/vinegar “set” or was just too expensive.
I finally found the perfect glass bottle at Bed Bath and Beyond.
It was 12 inches tall and only $3.99 after my 20% off coupon. I decided I could make it pretty (and look just the way I wanted with the craft supplies I already owned!
Supplies needed to make your own olive oil dispenser:
- Glass bottle
- Glass etching cream
- paint brush
- exacto knife
- sticker paper
- water source
- ribbon and/or some type of decorative
- item for the bottle neck
Using Picnik or some type of word processing program, create a simple design or word phrase. (I used Microsoft Word. )
Print your design on sticker paper. All I had was return address labels, so I had to print the words out on seperate labels to get the size I wanted.
Peel the sticker and place it on the bottle.
Paint the etching cream onto the sticker, following the directions on the label.
I had to use 2 stickers, I just applied the 2nd sticker over the 1st word.
Fill with olive oil and add your decorative items. I used ribbon and a miniature bell. Be sure you have enough olive oil to fill the bottle to the top. (Not like me, lol.)
Tada, So pretty!
If youxre inspired to create something based on this tutorial, I would love to see it!
