Quilled Clock

Quilled Clock

Supplies Required:

  • Wood Plate (9” – 10”)
  • Clock Kit
  • White Satin Enamel Paint
  • Quilling Paper in 1/8”, 1/4”, 3/8” widths – various colors
  • Glue


  • Power Drill
  • Quilling Tool

This was a fun project I made for my Mother’s Birthday.
Started with a 9” or 10” wood plate. Drill a hole in the center just large enough for the post of the Clock Kit to fit through.
Paint both sides of the wood plate with 1 coat of white satin enamel paint. After drying for 1 hour (or until dry to touch) spray the plate with 2 coats of Alabaster FleckStone Finish allowing 1 hour drying time between coats (or until dry to touch).
After completely dry install the clock works according to directions on package. The clockworks kit I used included stickers for all 12 hours but I only used 4 (12, 3, 6, 9)and used 6” graperolls for the remainder hours

Quilled Calendars

Quilled Calendars

Here is another idea for a long lasting gift for that special person. For the past few years, I have been making Quilled Calendars for family & friends. The calendar templates are easily created using many software packages – the one I use is Microsoft Publisher.

Print the calendar on heavy cardstock – 110# or higher. I use a one-hole punch to make a hanging hole at the top and then add quilling to the header.

You can quill anything on them, co-ordinating colors to match decorating schemes. Below are a few examples of calendars I have made.
