If you’re looking for a craft that’s both geeky and green, you won’t want to miss my Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy-inspired DON’T PANIC Drink Set in this week’s Geek Crafts column on FaveCrafts!
Welcome to the Geek Crafts column, your weekly dose of geeky goodness with Haley Pierson-Cox from The Zen of Making!
My local grocery store carries fancy carbonated lemonade in old fashioned bottles with clamp tops, and it’s one of my favorite summertime picnic treats. The bottles are so cool that I can never actually bring myself to recycle them with the rest of the glass, so I’ve amassed quite a collection over the years. But, thanks to the wonder that is glass etching cream, I’ve finally found a way to give them new life! In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to combine a beautiful glass bottle with a pair thrift store glasses to make a fun Hitchhiker’s Guide-inspired drink set. It’s cheap, fun, and Earth Day approved!
Trace “DON’T PANIC.” onto a sheet of adhesive-backed vinyl, then carefully cut out the letters using a craft knife.
You may also use an electronic cutter to cut the vinyl. (I used my Silhouette SD for this project.)
Thoroughly wash and dry the glasses and the bottle, then clean the outside surfaces with rubbing alcohol …
