So I was sitting here trying to find champagne flutes that could be personalized for our wedding party. They would not only be used the day of but double as favors. The Fiance wants to have a shot glass for the entire bridal party plus a beer mug for the guys and a champagne flute for the girls. All personalized. Well I was getting down since I couldn’t find ANYTHING in our price range that was still attractive. So I was bored here at home and was playing with a temporary tattoo and thought, Hey would this work? Thirty seconds later I had a new personalized glass. Now I can do our etched glasses for around $35 for all the glasses he wants.
Here’s my result:

Won’t the temp tattoos come off in the dishwasher? Just curious, I think that’s neat but if you’re giving them as gifts, you may want them to last longer 🙂

I wondered about that too, so I’m going to test them to see what happens.

I think it will probably come off but I bet if you go into a craft store you should be able to find some type of clear sealant (the type that would go over paint?) that might help

Yeah, I wouldn’t do this. First round in the dishwasher and it’ll be nice n messed up.

Michaels sells some glass etching cream…I played around with it a few months ago and it actually works pretty well. If you just made a stencil out of your temporary tattoo you could totally use the cream. Just be sure to really paste down the edges of the stencil so the cream doesn’t bleed underneath and make your etched design look smeared.

I can vouch for the etching cream. Future Sister-In-Law made us some personalized glasses for Christmas and they look beautiful and have held up really well. She used sticky vinyl and cut out a design she liked on her Cricut (you could probably do this without it of the tattoo design) put the sticky side of the vinyl on the glass so that the etching cream wouldn’t go outside of the design area and voila! I’ll see if I can upload a picture!

I’ve been playing around with it and so far it’s staying on there. I’m going to try a sealant and see if it helps even more. In any case I’m still going to get the etching cream and do that too. Thanks for everyone’s advice. 🙂
