DIY Etched Glass Beer Mugs: This Year, Give Dad Something He Will Actually Use for Father’s Day

If Dad’s got more photo mugs than he has desk space, it’s time to move on to a new Father’s Day gift. Make something you can use together now that you’re a grownup: etched glass beer mugs. Use stencils of his favorite hobbies and some glass etching cream to create these personalized Father’s Day gifts. Gift them with a six-pack of the craft brew of your choice and you’ve got the best Father’s Day ever. Cheers!

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
