Craftiosity is a UK based crafting subscription box that features a new craft project each month. For the month of September the project was a herringbone marquetry clock which is something I’ve never made before – I never thought I would! That’s one of the best things about the Craftiosity boxes as they include projects you never thought you’d ever make!
The boxes come with all of the specifics and materials you’ll need for the project, apart from basics such as a pencil, ruler, batteries etc. The box also comes with detailed step by step instructions that include useful images. Additionally, there’s also a link and password that will allow you access to their online video tutorial.
The project was surprisingly very easy and quick to complete – the instructions were also very helpful and easy to follow. I changed the design from the original herringbone pattern to a gradient stripy design as I love anything stripy! I’m very happy with how the clock turned out and I enjoyed the process of making it. I find craft projects to be very meditative, relaxing and surprisingly calming – great for our current times!
