Joy Pottery Magnet

By:

Spread a little joy any time of year. This project uses broken pottery that you would otherwise throw away. Instead, try repurposing items from home and create your own Joy Pottery Magnet from Candace Jedrowicz. This quick and easy craft makes a great gift.

Materials:

  • Aleene’s Clear Gel Tacky Glue
  • Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue
  • Broken pottery pieces
  • 20 Gauge wire – 10″
  • Micro beads – I combine all my colors for a fabulous confetti look
  • Double wheeled tile cutter
  • Jewelry tools – round and chain nosed pliers and cutters
  • Sand paper – 600 grit or higher

Instructions:

  1. I just love the double wheeled tile cutters that Eco Heidi Borchers turned us on to! They make cutting the pottery very easy. Cut your pottery piece into the desired shape. I went with a squarish shape. Sand all the edges so there are no sharp edges.

  2. As you begin to shape your wire word, make sure that it will fit well within your pottery piece.You can start with the last letter or the first. In this demo I show the former. Recheck the fit with every bend.

  3. Try to keep the letters in proportion. For sharp bends, crimp the wire with the chain nosed pliers.

  4. Here you can see that the word stays inside the frame of the pottery piece.This will give your edge treatment plenty of room.

  5. Spread a small amount of Aleene’s Clear Gel Tacky Glue on one edge at a time. Dip the glue edge in micro beads.Repeat on the remaining three sides.

  7. Decide how you want to orient your word.Note: You don’t have to make your own word. Use whatever ready-made word that works for you.
