Altered Clocks

Such a fun project!  Using an inexpensive (approximately $3.50) wall clock, remove the screws so that the back of the clock can be removed from the frame.  Then, gently remove the clock hands and set aside.  Decorate the face of the clock as desired, replace the clock hands and then re-insert the back into the frame.  You now have a cute, customized clock. 

The numbers on the clock face are cut from a self-adhesive vinyl using the Art Philosophy cartridge for the Cricut machine.   The large circles for the clock face were also cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge. 

This face of this red-framed clock was covered with a plaid paper from the Believe paper packet and then a piece of the cute Santa paper was also used.  The tree was stamped using A Timber and then cut out and placed on the clock.  There are Bitty Sparkles to add a bit of 'bling' to the tree. 

For the winter clock, a large sheet of snowflake paper from the Wonderland paper packet was used for the background.  For the large snowflake in the center, it was cut from Grey Flannel cardstock using the Art Philosophy cartridge.  Then, the entire surface of the snowflake was covered with glue and Prisma Glitter to give it plenty of shine.  There are also Bitty Sparkles on each tip of the snowflake.

All stamps and papers used are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).

  1. What a fun idea! Now I'm thinking how I can alter a clock for Ethan's bedroom.

  2. Wow! I don't know that I ever would have thought of doing that. What a clever idea. Thanks for sharing such great examples! :-)

  3. They turned out so cute! I have saved a clock for a similar project but haven't done anything with it yet - you've inspired me! TFS!
