Assembly:

FACEPLATE:

The face plate size is pretty much up to you… I use the dimensions either
2 1/4 x 2 1/4″… choice is yours…  Here is one for a Birthday.  Feel free to use it.

Print your faceplate… let dry… I spray mine with a clear gloss… to not only to give it shine, but also for extra protection…let dry overnight…

Apply Faceplate to Terra cotta pot…I use either a glue runner or glue stick.. ( your choice )

Apply Clear Gloss to entire piece ( Terra Cotta Pot with Graphic.. Terra Cotta Saucer with
Knob ) *****ADD BOWL LAST… HARD to remove residue

from Clear Gloss.. I know ! ****


Have fun..

    Hi Sheryl, The sku may have been changed. Try getting a bubble bowl from the Dollar Tree. I’m pretty sure it is the correct size.
