Are you looking for some unique and amazing wall décor? We’ve found a teacup clock that we’re absolutely in love with.
Isn’t it adorable? Well, you can now make it yourself with a great tutorial from Retropolitan. It’s cute. It works. It’s a conversation started. Let’s get started.
- 4ft by 4ft piece of underlayment
- 12 teacup and saucer sets
- 1 clock movement and hands (craft store)
- Paint, stencils, or stamps (whatever you want for decoration)
- Glass or porcelain epoxy
- 2 nuts and bolts
- Photo wire
- Mark the center of the 4×4 board with a nail.
- Cut a piece of string 27 inches long and use it as the radius of your circle to know where to paste the teacups.
- Tie one end of the string to the nail and tie a pencil to the other end. Trace a large circle on the board.
- Using a jig saw, cut out the circle.
- Then, drill a larger hole in the center of the circle to accommodate the clock mechanism.
- Now, get creative. Paint and decorate your clock back however you want to decorate it. Have fun!
- Lay out the 12 teacups and saucers like a clock face around the circle. Once you have them laid out how you want, use the epoxy to glue down each cup. Let sit for 24 hours.
- Attach the hanging hire to the back of the clock face with two nuts and bolts (make sure it’s secure).
- When connecting to the wall, make sure you use heavy duty connections to ensure the heavy clock doesn’t fall.
