Sharing with you today a shabby chic inspired DIY Wood Clock
I made for Paper Issues
newest challenge, The World is a Circle
The Paper Issues creative team was sent Ruby Rock-It
, East Coast Essence collection to create a “Circle” inspired project with. What’s more circle than a traditional clock? The idea of making a DIY clock came to me when I saw the AM/PM lettering along with clock times on a sheet of the East Coast collection. I just love how small random things can inspire to creativity!
DIY Wood Clock
I’ve always been a fan of clocks but clocks seem to be going the way of CD’s and the beloved “be kind, rewind” VCR tape. I’m not even sure if most people actually use a real clock to tell time anymore. Everyone just checks there cell phone for the time.
To embellish the clock, I used my Silhouette to cut out various sized circles and adhered them on to the clock face. I also included the one sheet of patterned paper that inspired me to make this DIY clock. Notice the AM/PM lettering and clock times in the middle? Yep, those lil’ letters were the inspiration behind this whole clock.
The clock base is from Walnut Hollow which I painted with Americana Chalky Finish Paint.
I used a dry brush technique to paint another coat of Chalky Finish paint around the edges to give the base a little bit of contrast.
I hope my DIY Wood Clock
inspires you to think “Circles” and link up your The World is Circle
project over at Paper Issues
for a chance to win the WHOLE Ruby Rock-It East Coast Collection.
