Homemade Holiday Gift Idea!: Make an Etched Glass Beer Growler
Maker: Kristi Murphy
Skill Level: Easy
Time Required: Less than one hour
Project Cost: Roughly $5 per growler (beer not included)
Kristi came up with this idea for a groomsmen gift, but it works really, really well for the holidays as well, when all are eating, drinking, and making merry. Fill it with local beer, and it’s a personal, affordable, and reusable present.
- Using the stencils and tape, create your pattern and spell out the giftee’s name on the glass growler bottle.
- Per instructions, apply etching cream to the areas left exposed by the stencils.
- Let sit for 15 minutes. Then, rinse with water.
