Back when I had an Etsy shop, these were one of our best sellers. It’s so simple to turn a plate into a clock, and they make great gifts!
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!
So simple to make, and such a great craft idea to sell, gift or display in your own home!
