How Do You Etch Glass With Cricut?

Using a Cricut machine to etch glass is a relatively simple task. All you need is some etching cream, a Cricut machine, and the right material for the job. With the right tools, you can create beautiful etched glass pieces in no time.

The first step to etching glass with a Cricut is to choose the right material. You need to make sure that the material is compatible with your Cricut machine.

Most common materials used for etching glass include vinyl, adhesive vinyl, and stencil vinyl. You can use any of these materials with your Cricut machine.

Once you’ve chosen the appropriate material for your project, it’s time to prepare it for etching. Depending on the type of material you’ve chosen, you may need to apply an adhesive to one side of it. This will help keep your design in place while it’s being etched into the glass.

Next, you’ll need to use your Cricut machine and software to create a design for your project. Once your design is ready, you can transfer it onto the prepared material using transfer tape or contact paper. Make sure that everything lines up properly before transferring it onto the glass.

Now that everything is ready and in place, it’s time to apply some etching cream onto the areas of your design that should be etched into the glass. Once all of the areas have been covered with etching cream, let it sit on there for around five minutes before wiping it off with a wet cloth.

Finally, remove any excess adhesive or vinyl from around your design and then wipe down the entire surface of the glass with rubbing alcohol or window cleaner. Your finished product should now be ready for display!


Etching glass with a Cricut machine is an easy and fun way to create beautiful designs on any type of glass surface. By following these easy steps and using some basic materials like vinyl and etching cream, anyone can make their own unique etched designs in no time!
