How to Make a Personalized Father's Day Gift

Trying to find the perfect Father's Day gift 
is not always easy.

But this hand-made gift is perfect in every way for the young dads in our family. 

On a recent trip to Target I found these glasses in the dollar section... well $3 section to be exact.

They're cute but definitely not special enough.

Until I had the idea to get crafty with them. 

I used my vinyl cutter to cut out the birth dates of my grandchildren. One Dad has 2 boys and the other has one on the way. 

This mother of 4 girls is finally getting her boys in the form of grandsons!

I attached the vinyl stencil to the back of the glass and pressed down around all the edges.

I used a product called Armour Etch glass etching cream (affiliate link) and painted it on the stencil.  The directions say to leave it on for one minute but I found it needed double that time on my glasses. *It is important to follow the manufacturers directions.

When the time was up I rinsed off the cream then pulled off the vinyl stencil. 

You will want to wash and dry the glass.

The etching worked perfectly, it is just a little hard to photograph. I put a dark piece of paper inside the glass so you could see it a little better. 

This made the cutest gift for the special Dad and Dad to-be.
I wrapped it in a gift bag with their favorite beer!

This was the perfect way to personalize an inexpensive
gift to give it meaning to the dads in our lives.
