How to Upcycle a Thrift Store Candy Dish

Upcycle candy dish

Are you like me and have a whole cabinet of cute glassware you picked up in the thrift store? I mean, who can resist it?!?!? Vintage glassware is so beautiful but after a while the hubs starts looking at me funny. I can just hear him saying "really Anita? Really?" So the time has come to move some of it out. Today I am sharing how to upcycle a thrift store candy dish into a beautiful gift using etchall® etching creme. This project is so easy and you will love how it comes out!

Start out by creating a stencil for the top of the dish. I used a die to cut this one out of a new stencil material that is hopefully coming to the market soon. I LOVED working with it! Adhere the stencil to your project and make sure that all the edges are pressed down well before applying the etching creme.

To see the full etching process check out this blog post.

After I etched the top I finished the box off with some ribbon and flowers around the side of the container.

To accent the etched surface I added small pearls all around the outside of the design. I love the way it turned out and I can't wait to gift it to someone!
