Happy Hearts Day, my friends! Today’s post is part tutorial/part shop update, as I’m going to show you how to make these…
I’ve listed a few different styles in my shop, but for those DIYers out there, I thought I’d share the how-to.
clockwork supplies (Michaels is a good source)
drill and 5/16th ceramic bit
Step 1: Mark the center of your plate. Using your hammer and nailset, make a small indentation in the center of your plate (this is to keep your drill from slipping when you go to drill your hole).
Step 2: Using your drill and ceramic bit (I think you can also find glass bits as well, depending on the composition of your plate), drill a hole through the plate. Spray with water as you do so to keep dust and bits of glass to a minimum (it can get rather messy!)
Step 3: Admire your handiwork…
Step 4: Insert your clockwork…
and you’re done!
These would be great displayed on a mantel or shelf, hung on a wall…or given as a gift!
Thanks for reading!
