Mid-Century Monday: DIY Atomic Clock Magnets

Good morning my dears, and happy Monday! How was your weekend? Get any thrifting, estate saling or rummaging in? I would love to hear about what you found! My find of the weekend was a vintage crystal punch bowl set. The bowl has a pedestal base, and the cups hang along the rim. It's exactly what I've been looking for, and I'm so excited to break it in!

I was also able to get some craft time in for Halloween decorations, and it was in that mindset that I came across today's Mid-Century Monday post, our first one involving a DIY project: atomic clock magnets via the How About Orange blog. They're made from bottle caps, designs printed on paper and Modge Podge, and they're super stylish!



Luckily, one of my friends faithfully gives me bottle caps — a big bag every couple months — because I like to think of different things they can be repurposed into. But if you don't have any lying around, it's a perfect excuse to have friends over, (responsibly) knock back some beers, and then you're ready to go! (The next day, of course. Crafting and drinking do not mix, kids.)

And if you're adept at using computer design programs, you can make your own graphics and use the same method. I'm already thinking of variations I can make and give as little presents for Christmas. I'll let you know how they turn out!

In the meantime, if you want to try your hand, click here for the full tutorial. While you're there check out her other projects, because she's got a knack for DIY.
