i think a full wine bottle would be a great idea. i'd say the only potential problem is that you'd screw up the label by getting tape on it, getting it wet, or whatever. but it would be a cool idea to personalize. and the cream isn't going to get through the glass!

I went for the wine bottle tonight. I just soaked off all the labels and then put my friends' names on it for a housewarming gift. I was going to add "home sweet home" to the other side but had to move on to other things. Hard to capture it all with my amateur photographing skills, but you get the idea...

and just for fun...I've made a few of these holiday ornaments with clear glass balls (not super original, just peoples' names still, but they are filled with different kinds of lichens b/c we are all nature geeks)

I love the ornaments! And I would have never thought to personalize wine! Thats great. By the way, is that a bottle of yellow tail? Just wondering.

Hi - what did you use for the lettering?  I want to write the word "believe" on some votives.  Thanks!

i just bought letter stickers at michaels. i forget exactly what they were, but they are snazzy gold, silver and black ones in the scrapbook section. I find it kind of tricky to get them straight (never could follow straight lines) so i carefully put a piece of masking tape on my objects and measure to make sure it is parallel to the base and proceed. Time consuming, but worth it for me!

and zephren...i almost bought a bottle of yellow tail but got this instead (now i forget what it is! i have another bottle at home...). choose this b/c it was discounted more than the yellow tail  Smiley funny they do look so much alike stripped of their labels...

I just don't have $32 to spend on etching creme right now, so does anyone know of a place online maybe that sells it a bit cheaper?

I googled etching cream and found some here- http://store.artcity.com/arp-150150.html for about $6! I plan on doing this project too, and thats a great deal i must say...

I checked that site, and the jar that is $6 is only 3oz of cream.  The $32 jar is 24oz.  That works out to about $2/oz for the small bottle. And $1.30/oz for the large bottle. 

But, if you're only planning on doing a few small projects, the 3oz jar might work.  But, don't expect to make gifts for the entire family.  You'll easily use the whole jar just to cover one or two projects.  Of course you can reuse it, by scraping it off, back into the bottle.

Also, the 32oz bottle on that site is only $26.  A bargain over what you'd pay at places like Michael's. 

However, shipping, for orders under $29.99 require $6.50 for shipping.  Which make it completely not worth it.

I made some really cool glasses for christmas presents.. I put my friends names on martini glasses and a name and picture on a beerstein that I got for like a dollar at a thrift store.. It was really easy to make a stencil out of contact paper and that peeled right off.. hopefully I can post some pictures soon!
