So I went on a Mod Podge rampage today and started a few projects. One of them being a little wall clock I had hanging in my living room. It was one of those cheap wall clocks that you'd find at a school or a doctor's office. It's soul purpose was to help us remember what time to get Aden on and off the bus. The problem was, after I finished my wall mirror, the clock came down and I really never felt inspired to hang it back up...that is until today!
The wall clock was a little boring and I just wanted something a little different to have in the living room. SO here's my very first Mod Podge project for you to enjoy or whatever my mindless ramblings inspire you to do!
|This is what I started with, an ordinary clock.|
|I removed the Back.|
|This is the clock Mechanism. It easy pops off the back with just a tug.|
|See that tiny clear plastic nib? That holds the crystal (that's the clear plastic front) in place. Press in with a small screw driver and it will pop out the front.|
|The hands come off with a gentle tug.|
|This the paper face of the clock. Old double-sided sticky tape once held this in place.|
|Then to the computer to design a simple clock face. You can find templates online. I made my own with photoshop.|
|Printed my design onto a piece of paper.|
|I Mod Podged the new paper face to the old one and set it back into the clock body.|
|Clock Mechanism snaps back into place.|
|The clock's hands also snap back on. Just be sure that there aren't any obstructions like air bubbles to keep the hand from sweeping around the clock.|
|Snap the crystal back into place from the front.|
|Screw the back on.|
|My clock in it's final resting place.|
