Personalized Wine Carafe

I hope everybody's holiday was wonderful! I had a fantastic time with the family, and I am definitely looking forward to New Years with them!

Now that everyone has unwrapped their gifts, I can FINALLY post about them! For the next few days, expect a flood of crafty blogging :)

First off- I have been dying to post this one. For Christmas, I made David's mother a personalized wine carafe.


I grabbed this cute carafe from Hobby Lobby :)



On my Cricut, I cut out "Valeria's Wine" on vinyl and smoothed it over the carafe.



Then I applied a thick layer of Etching cream in the cut-out letters and left it to dry for about 10 minutes.

After the time was up, I rinsed the carafe under water and took the vinyl off.

Here is the finished product-



It's kind of hard to see, but it really did turn out nice!

I love being able to personalize items, especially for people with unique names. This carafe made a great gift. Who doesn't love wine after all??
