Simple Solutions: Monogrammed glass for Christmas

Print out letters in a big, fancy font.

Stick one to a sheet of self-adhesive vinyl.

Cut around the letter using a craft knife, peel off the vinyl and stick it to a glass, smoothing out any bubbles.

Use a sheet of hole reinforcers and play with polka-dots.

Dab on glass etching cream. Follow the instructions carefully as it’s corrosive.

Leave for 10 minutes then remove the excess using a wood or plastic scraper.

Wash gently and leave to dry, then peel off the vinyl sticker.

Give to a loved one with a nice bottle of wine.
