Easy as Pi(e) ~ Glass Etched Pie Plate

I think teaching Geometry this summer is really bringing out the dork in me. I just can't help it. Today we were learning all about finding the area and circumference of circles and of course PI!

And then I came home and saw my pie plate...30 minutes later I had this.
My husband totally thinks I am a dork. I don't think he liked it very much...but what do you think? Is it cute? Clever? Or should I drop it off at Goodwill? haha

I used my Cricut Alphalicious cartridge for the words "easy as". Then I used the Jasmine cartridge for the Pi symbol - see the picture for how it came together.

Vinyl (aka contact paper) is ready to go - time to get out the Armor Etch and lather that stuff on. I love this part - so easy but yet SO productive.

About one song of Lady Antebellum on my Pandora station later and it's already time to get the Armor Etch off. I used my foam brush and put it back into the jar! Yup, I just learned that you can use this stuff over and over again.

Run it under warm water, peel it off, and...

Here it is! Time to make a pie so I can use this beautiful, dorky dish?

It's as easy as pi!? :) 


  1. Ha ha! That's awesome! Love me some pi(e). :)

  2. Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog! I think this project is brilliant! It made me chuckle.

  3. I think it's dorky, but hilarious/cute! Definitely don't take it to Goodwill! I'm sure your hubby doesn't use the pie dish, so it's ok if he doesn't like it!

  4. Such an awesome project! I love the pi, very clever ;)

  5. I love this! It looks so easy!

  7. Wow I'm so happy that I found this wonderful blog that may be a good source of ideas when I want to make my own etched glass. Thank you!

  8. This is so awesome! You should sell the template on etsy!
