Your family's probably a lot like mine.
For years we've gone around the table and everyone says what they are thankful for.
A couple years ago I mixed it up a bit and had family members right down their "thanks" and I included a couple Bible verses on Thankfulness.
So for this year, I made a special jar that incorporates this tradition.
I cut several strips of paper in various colors.
Added a small binder clip and attached it to the ribbon to keep it the pieces of paper together.
Start with something glass with a clean and clear surface.
For this plate, I'm going to etch on the back.
I used this Armour Etch cream. I'm sure there are other out there.
I created a stencil with vinyl and my Silhouette.
You could use contact paper and cut out your own design.
Because I'm doing this on the back of the dish, I cut out my stencil backwards or as a mirror image.
Apply a thick coat of the etching cream and follow the directions on the bottle
(5 minutes in the case of Armour Etch). Wipe off with a wet paper towel.
My friend Kate and I etched all sorts of things last week:
What are some of your Thanksgiving traditions?
