Personalized Dog Treat Jar

When I saw this post over at Young House Love for a DIY'd etched glass jar, I just had to give it a try. I wanted to try to make a personalized dog treat jar for Emmit. When I found this jar at Target, I thought it was just perfect and it was only $4.99!
I followed the instructions on Young House Love but had some trouble cutting out the stencil onto a piece of painters tape. I think the size of my stencil was too big for the piece of tape.
After several attempts at cutting out my stencil for the jar I gave up on the painters tape an used a piece of shelf liner. It was the only thing I could think of that was sticky and could adhear to the jar.
Next, all I had to do was paint on the Armour Etch(you can get it at Michael's)and wait 60 seconds.....umm that's it???
I'm not going to lie, I waited longer than 60 seconds just to be sure it worked. Next, you just rinse it off...peel off the stencil (shelf liner) and voila!
Here is Emmit's new treat jar. Shhhh...don't tell him about it. It's a Christmas gift!
