A few months ago, back when I first started the craft side of my blog, I enjoyed trolling around and searching for inspiration and great idea. Well I still do that, but this inspiration came from that time period. I save all the inspirations I get from the internet into a folder on my browser. So ANYWAY… I saw this clock here and put it in the back of my mind to look for an old clock. I found one!
Pretty nasty, huh? I actually already took off the hands and spray painted them when I remembered to take this pictures. I actually found this a few months ago and put it in my future craft box just waiting for when I finally got around to putting a photo collage together. When I ordered the invitations printed at Costco it made sense to finally do the collage and order that too.
So I printed of a 12 by 12 inch pictures in black and white. Then I cut a hole in the middle to fit over the hardware.
I spread out a layer of mod podge all over the place…
and layed down the picture, squishing out all the bubbles.
flipping over the clock I cut the excess photo off of the clock.
Then I decided rather than have a glossy photo finished I wanted a more matte painted look and mod podged over the top as well. I’m glad I did. I’m really happy with the way it looks! So what do you think! Now if only I could get it to tell time! I tested it to make sure it worked before I did this project, it did work, so I moved on. What I didn’t realized is that it works, but not on time, it’s moving slower than it should. So anyone know how to fix a slow clock?Do NOT miss a single post.
