The next thing we knew this became a favorite for Super Saturday Craft Days. I even made up some stencils to help the process.
But today it is a little harder. You cannot find the particle board rounds that used to make this such and easy craft.
So a couple of years ago we decided to have a clock day and we set aside one day to cut out all of the rounds and the other day to paint and decorate. And the best part about that is that since we were cutting it out we could make it as big as 48" if we wanted to. So here are pictures of a 36" (top) clock and a 42" clock (bottom) that we made. It really is a fun thing to make. When we made clocks we figured the total cost of a 42" clock to be $40 (but we stenciled the numbers and lettering-vinyl lettering may cost more.
I usually get my ideas from magazines. If you like to look of a clock in a magazine copy it! Can you tell? -the pictures on the left were taken from my favorite magazines, do they look familiar???
This is pretty much my only claim to fame while doing a clock demo on the midday news. That was a really fun opportunity.
