It is really surprising how easy it is to etch glass. I etched some glass mugs for my Christmas presents this year and thought it would be a great method to use for some table numbers! All you need are some pieces of glass (if you go to a glass shop, they will cut and smooth the edges for you), glass etching paste (found at any craft store), and vinyl numbers. I found that Michael’s has a small section with glass etching tools, including several pre-made vinyl numbers and letters. If you have a fancy cutting tool like a Silhouette or Cricket, you can create your own design and cut pieces of vinyl (or be super skilled and hand cut your own). I actually used the inverse from vinyl letters for mailboxes I found at a hardware store. Then just follow the steps on the glass etching paste, and you are just a few minutes away from modern, chic table numbers!
