From Recycled to - Welcome Fall!
Happy Monday! to all. Today I want to share a fun recycled project that can be used for any season. I love to include recycled materials as much as possible in my crafty projects, today I use an empty Starbucks coffee glass container, I love drinking these a lot, so I do have many on hand and many that have been recycled already.
Today's project is very simple, pretty and easy to change it's look. The main crafting products I'm using today are from Etchall, I love how easy their products are and not only that but you get to recycle their etching creams and now you get to use their new stencils over and over again, yes they have some new fun stencils that are re-usable, these are called ETCHNET™ Re-usable Stencils they currently have two Halloween sets on sale, so I suggest you go check them out.
I loved the idea of been able to use these stencils over and over again, they are not sticky, there's no glue on them, they are so easy to use. I simply used masking tape to pull the ends of the stencil together very tight. then I added more masking tape to make sure no etching cream would accidentally spread out to the other areas of the glass bottle, it is important to protect the areas you don't want etched.
As you can see below, I share photos of how I used this Etchnet re-usable stencil of the letter M that has some tiny cute mushrooms.

|Here is my stencil ready for the etching cream|
