I plan to do this this year, and I just thought that some other people might benefit from the idea.

Etched wine glasses.

Go to your local cheapy store (Dollar Store, whatever it's called in your area) and find some wine glasses. 10 to 1 they'll have some. Buy a set of 6, just to make it nice and even.

Then go to your local craft store and buy glass etching cream, as well as some stencils. I figure the rest is obvious.

It's relatively cheap, and makes a wonderful-looking gift for adult friends or relatives when you don't realy know what to get for them. Find a nice stencil design and use the etching cream to put it on the wine glass.

Just be careful with the cream. It's highly corrosive, so work in a well-ventilated room, with kids and pets out of the way. Wear gloves, and possibly goggles, just to be on the safe side.

This whole venture should cost you about $20. (At least it'll cost me that.) All things considered, that's not bad for a set of etched wine glasses!

You're overall cost would probably drop too.. if you have etching cream left for later projects. Smiley I must see if I can find etching cream at some local stores (ive been considering it for awhile, and havent seen any).. I think (but dont quote me Tongue) that theyre may be some tutorials around here somewhere for this kinda thing...
