Wash Your Hands Wall Art

After a few devastating attempts at glass etching I remembered I had some frosted Silhouette vinyl that would work for my glass etched wall art for my bathroom.   I am usually not over the top with washing hands.   But since that nasty stomach bug left our house I have been a bit more intentional.   I decided to have yet another reminder in our bathroom to wash your hands.   Plus I just thought it was so darn cute.

My original inspiration came from Land of Nod’s Wash Your Hands Wall Art which retails for $89.   I didn’t want it as cutesy for my downstairs bathroom so I thought a glass etched look would kick up the elegance factor a little bit.

Using my Silhouette Studio program I designed the wording and then I flipped it horizontally so I could cut out the letters and place them on my glass backwards.   That way they would show through the glass but it would be easier to clean. So the Silhouette cut out the letters and then I used my tweezers to remove the letters.

Then I sprayed an old 8” x 10” garage sale frame with some black Krylon spray paint and popped the glass in.

I still want to add one more thing to the shelf.   I like to decorate in odd numbers, I just like the way it looks.   But I love the simplicity of this bathroom décor.

P.S.   I will try my hand again at using the   glass etching cream   Apparently reading the directions is a requirement for having satisfactory results…who knew?

  1. Love this idea….easier than the etching for sure!

  2. Super cute idea! I need that for my bathroom!!

  3. nice! and you saved $80 bucks! haha

  4. I so knocked these off too. I haven’t posted them yet though because I was looking for frames. I found some and painted them yesterday so my post should go up sometime next week. I also made some personalizations and alterations to how they looked and who was ordering the washing.

    Yours turned out wonderfully.

  5. I love your reproduction! I’ve never tried the etching cream…it looks too intimidating. Just an FYI- those signs are by John W. Golden on etsy- I’ve gotten smaller versions for much cheaper! He usually has sales, too.

  6. Such a cute idea, and I love how simple it looks!

  7. That is super cute!

  8. I think it turned out very nicely, Beckie! Something with details with those tiny stars and all the letters might just have done better with the vinyl than the etching cream. I’ve etched one thing as a craft project during a MOPS meeting…it was just a fleur de lis, and it required a lot of attention! ;) I like decorating in odd numbers too! :)

  9. PS. So excited about your Silhouette toolbar!!! So kind of you to share your files with us. :)

  10. I HATE etching cream :( that was the main reason I bought the Silhouette was to do project with etching and I haven’t had a single success no matter how hard I try.

  11. I totally love it and it looks better than the original. It is more classy!! Great job!

  12. how cUTE! and what a good reminder! i have 2 boys and their dad, so its like pulling teeth to keep them all clean :)

    thanks for sharing!
