WHIMSICAL PLATE CLOCK DIY

SHARPIE PAINT MARKER CLOCK- A very easy and fun clock make with your imagination and sharpie paint markers!

Have you ever had an idea in your head and just could not get it out until you did it? I’ve had an idea to make a clock out of a plate for awhile and I finally made it! It’s so easy and I can think of so many ways to recreate a plate clock like this. Father’s Day is coming soon and it would be the perfect gift to give to Dad from the kids. I can see it styled with a monogram or house numbers or checks, florals, stripes…  The options are as endless as your imagination! My plate clock is whimsical and floral and colorful and fun! If you like coloring you will love this project!!!! Let’s make this very fun clock!

With just a couple materials and your imagination you can make an original plate clock!  I wanted a colorful (yes, me) that sorta looked like those adult coloring book doodles. It’s going in my new study! How fun to have a big colorful clock!

Now, I’m no artist, not at all, but I really got into it!  

Here’s what you will need to make a plate clock:

  • 1 large white dinner plate
  • 1 diamond head ceramic drill 
  • 1 clock works kit
  • Sharpie Paint Markers  …  I got my markers at Michaels. ALL SHARPIE PAINT MARKERS ARE BOGO 50% AT MICHAELS FROM JUNE 5-11 AND AGAIN FROM JUNE 19-25 WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.

I marked the center of the plate with a Sharpie Paint Marker and then using the diamond drill head drilled the center out of the plate VERY SLOWLY. It’s important to dribble cold water on to the center of the plate to keep the drill bit cool. I didn’t put much pressure on the drill. If too much pressure is put on the drill the plate can crack. Worked perfectly!

Honestly, this was so so easy!

2. Using Sharpie Paint Markers, draw a design on the plate. 

3. The finished and colored in designed. It’s sorta like coloring in an adult coloring book! Fun, fun, fun!!!!

5. Attach the clock works to the clock according to package directions. Set the correct time.

6. Hang on a wall or set on a plate stand.

That’s it! Easy Peasy!!!!

  1. Thanks Yvonne for the the whimsical idea. I can hardly wait to do this project with my oldest granddaughter, as she is always wanting to make something when she comes to Gamma’s. Have a good day!

  2. Gosh that looks like fun and so bright and cheerful. Our 11 year daughter is the super crafty one of all the children. I am going to show this to her as soon as she gets home from school. Then I will have to figure out where to buy the clock parts in France! Then I know she is going to make this for her bedroom. Thank you, it’s gorgeous. Susan x

  3. I would love to know where you got the plate? It’s perfect! Love that idea! Excited to make a plate clock for my grandkids bunk room. Thanks for sharing!

  4. This would be a great project for my granddaughter and I to do together! She can make one for her bedroom and I’ll make one for my she shed. We already have the sharpie paint markers and can get the plate from GW’s (Goodwill). Then all we would need is the clock kit and we’re in business! Can’t wait to tell her. Thanks for posting Yvonne!

  5. Oh I love this idea, I am always looking for crafts to do with my nieces when the sleep over. They will love this craft!!!! I think you did a fabulous job on yours. Thanks so much Yvonne!
