DIY Etched Dog Treat Jar

Hopefully you made your furry friend the dog treat recipe we posted a while back.  If not you can find it here.  We want to take your treat game up a notch and show you how to make a fun etched treat holder. What I love about this craft is that it’s super easy and turns out looking really great.  Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Glass jar with a lid- if you’re like me you may have one of these lying around.  You could even upcycle an old spaghetti sauce jar, just spray paint the lid when you’re done
  • Painter’s tape
  • Stickers 
  • Paint brush
  • Glass etching cream (you can get this at any craft store)

Step 1

Apply stickers or spell out a word with stickers on your jar.  Make sure the stickers are on tight since you don’t want any etching cream to get under your stickers.

Step 2

Apply the painter’s in a frame close to the lettering and make sure it’s tight.  Also ensure it’s straight so your etching is nice and clean.

Step 3

Apply the etching cream (according to the directions on the package) to everything inside the painters tape and allow to dry.  I left it on longer than the directions said, about 15 minutes.

Step 4

Run the jar under water to remove the etching cream. Peel off the stickers and tape and dry your jar.  

Step 5

Hooray, you finally made a craft you can use.  Whip up a batch of homemade dog treats and you have a great gift for yourself or someone you love
