DAD Etched Mason Jar Mugs

My dad and I were talking about mason jar mugs a few months back.  He had asked if I remembered the ones we drank out of in Dollywood.  I didn’t.  It was so long ago (although, I do remember clogging onstage with my cousins and meeting “Johnny Appleseed”).  I had two of those mason jar mugs in my cabinet that I wasn’t using so I gave them to him.
A few weeks ago, Dad and I were talking about etched glasses and I told him how easy it was to make them yourself with etching cream.  He had mentioned wanting to make a set of etched glasses for himself.  I decided to make him a couple etched mason jar mugs for Father’s Day to get him inspired.
