A pineapple drinking glass filled with water and pineapple juice ice cubes. The water glass features an etched pineapple on it and sits atop a wooden cutting board. There's a yellow bowl filled with pineapple cocktail picks in the background.

Especially when you add some pineapple juice ice cubes to them or a favorite fruity cocktail. (You can find these cute pineapple ice cube trays here.)

(I first shared this project on This Grandma is Fun, but thought summer was the perfect time to share it here at Atta Girl Says.)

To make these pineapple drinking glasses, start with a pair of inexpensive glass water goblets and glass etching cream.

I have done several etched glass projects, and it’s a great way to get a high-end look for not much money. And etching glass is easier than you think, too, especially with some of the new formulations of low-odor etching creams available.

How to Make Pineapple Drinking Glasses

I used DecoArt’s resuable Easy Etch cream for this project, but any glass etching product will work. Just be sure to check the manufacturer’s directions to know how long to leave the product on the glass. The water goblets are from the dollar store, but you could do this project on any kind of clear drinking glasses.

Use your Silhouette Cameo to cut a vinyl stencil to make these etched pineapple drinking glasses.

I found a pineapple stencil I liked from Smirking Goddess. With her permission, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut a stencil from vinyl. (You can download the FREE SILHOUETTE CUT FILE here.

To make the etched pineapple drinking glasses, use a Silhouette cameo to cut a pineapple stencil from vinyl. Apply the adhesive stencil to the water goblets, pressing firmly

After weeding the design from the vinyl, I used my transfer paper to apply the stencil to the goblets. Be sure the glasses are clean and smudge-free. I usually wipe them down with rubbing alcohol and allow to air dry.

Since the glass is not flat, the stencil will wrinkle some, and that’s OK. Just make sure that you press firmly all over the design, so the etching cream doesn’t seep under the stencil and ruin the design. Use a clean cloth, not your fingers, to press the stencil so you don’t get fingerprints or oil on the glass.

To make the etched pineapple drinking glasses, apply the etching cream to the stencil.

While wearing gloves, use a plastic knife to apply a thick coat of Easy Etch cream to the glass.

Allow the etching cream to sit on the glass for 15 minutes (or whatever the manufacturer recommends.) If you’re using Easy Etch, after 15 minutes, use the plastic knife or wooden craft stick to scrape the etching cream off the glass and return it to the jar.

Then rinse under cold water until completely removed, and remove the stencil. (For other etching creams, you just wipe and rinse away the excess.)
