DIY Wood Clock…

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.

Chalky Finish Paint

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.
