Name Plate Inspiration by DT Mounika

Hi everyone, I am here with a simple and easy name plate that you can make and decorate your home with...

To start with lightly sanded an MDF base and clean it with a dry cloth. I have used a tray here. Then apply Chocolate Brown shade of Chalk Paint to the inside of the base and Ocean Blue for the outside of the base.

Once the chalk paint is dry, cut down pattern paper to the fit inside the base, distress it with ink and glue it to the base. 

Then, choose a few chipboard embellishments and and distress them with distress inks randomly. Finally glue them on the inner base.

Use MDF letters for the desired name and paint them with chalk paint and distress the edges with inks. Arrange and glue them inside the base. To decorate further, use flowers, leaves and other embellishments from your stash around the frame. 

Materials used:

  • Mdf base
  • Chalk paint
  • Distress Inks- Walnut Stain, Peacock Feathers, Seedless Preserves
  • Pattern papers
  • Mulberry flowers
  • Mdf alphabets
  • Papericious chipboard embellishment
  • Heart shaped chipboard embellishment
  • White glue

All the above used materials are available at rainbowcraftykari store or you can pre-order them by sending an e-mail to

Quilled Wall Clock by DT Ishani

Hello dear crafters,

      As the year comes to an end, I think it’s time to pause and think of all the good things that happened and the lessons we learnt from our mistakes. An ode to the time, which stops for none is the project I have for you.

     I have a quilled clock to adore the lovely walls of your little girl’s room. You can have variations as per your requirement. You could also make it to suit your d├ęcor or may have a masculine themed clock. I just adore florals and wanted to show you some simple quilled flowers to adorn anything you’d want to.

Material required:

Cardboard/chipboard (for frame of the clock)

Clock assembly

Pattern paper

Double sided tape

Quilling strips (3mm or 5mm)

Slotted quilling tool



Small half pearls

1. I took an empty chocolate box as a base of my clock. You can take a cardboard/ chipboard or any other cardboard box of your choice for the base of the clock.

2. I found the centre point of the base and poked a hole so that the clock assembly can come piercing through that hole. Then I assembled the clock parts to see if they
fit well.

3. Then I took a pattern paper to cover the cardboard piece and tucked it into the sides neatly. I used double-sided tape on the surface of the box to neatly stick the
pattern paper.

4. Now is the time to quill your favourite things. I have used 3mm strips here, but if you are a beginner you can start with 5mm strips (as you have more surface to hold on to). I used basic teardrop shape to make the majority of my flowers and leaves. To quill a teardrop shape, make a tight coil of the strip take it off the quilling tool, loosen the coils just a little bit and pinch from one side. Most of the shapes are done this way, just the pinching differs. I used a half pearl for the centre of few of the flowers.

These are the shapes I made with the teardrop shape.

5. I used another favourite technique of mine to make a flower by using the crimping tool. Crimp the strip you want to be the outside of the flower. Attach it to the small strip that will make the pollen area of the flower. Then, coil it to have a plain pollen part and a crimped petal part.

6. I made tight coils of two colours stuck together and made tendrils to add interest to the flowers and leaves.

7. Before you stick them on, mark the hours utilising a protractor, from 0° to 360°at 30° difference. Arrange your flowers depicting each hour and stick them on the base
using glue. You could also glaze each of the flowers or use a sealant to protect your work before you stick them. 

8. Now that the flowers are arranged and glued to the clock, put a battery in your clock assembly and your clock is ready and ticking!

I hope you are inspired by this tutorial and would try something similar. Most of the materials mentioned above are available at Rainbow Craftykari Store and you can also pre-order by sending an e-mail to
