Etched Square Jar
I have been playing occasionally with glass etching over the past year and I was very pleased with how this particular project looked when it was finished. I think the green tint of the glass really helps make the etching stand out. I repeated the same design on each side of the jar, which did require a bit of precision and patience, but overall this was a fairly quick project.
This will be a nice jar for storing buttons, spools of thread or embroidery floss or other sewing notions. Or I could use it in the kitchen for my dried herbs. I could leave the lid off and put potpourri in it or use it as a candle holder.
In what way could/would you use a jar like this?
