DIY Monogramed Hurricane Vase

I printed out a font that was about 6 in tall on computer paper. Then I traced the letter onto an adhesive stencil sheet.  Next I cut it out.

This stuff is awesome! I would wear gloves though. My skin is still pealing!

I applied the stencil on the vase and painted on a thick layer of etching cream. It is supposed to cure for 5 minutes but I recommend letting it sit a bit longer.

Wash with soap and water.

How pretty would these be with lemons or candles in them!

I am totally obsessed with monograms and I think they make wonderful personalized gifts for all occasions.

I made three vases for both my sisters and mother in law for Christmas and filled them with candy.
