DIY Frosted Etched Jar Tutorial

I really wanted some cute decorative jars for my laundry room to hold my different soaps in.  I found some at Walmart for a GREAT deal, $9.99 for the 2 gallon, and $7.99 for the 1 gallon.  I looked at other stores and these were by far the best deal around. 

I purchased scrap booking letters and put them on the jar according to what I wanted them to say -

Tape off a square around your lettering and cover the rest of the jar so it doesn't get frosted as well - 

Then spray with Krylon's Glass Frosting -

Apply several thin coats and let dry.  Then remove paper, tape, and stickers and you have an attractive frosted etched glass jar - 

Storing things never looked so pretty!
