I’ve always wanted this huge, colorful clock for my daughter’s playroom.. but all the really “cool” clocks cost a fortune! So, I was determined to make my own 🙂
I’m in love with this clock, and it was so easy to make! Overall, it cost me roughly $17 to make and looks amazing!
The wood round circles (big and small), I bought at Michaels with a 40% off coupon. Likewise, the clock mechanism and hands were also bought at Michaels. These were the only supplies I had to buy. I had enough acrylic paint to paint all wood circles different colors. I had to do a few coats on the wood as it just ate up the paint – so that took the longest to do.
For the numbers, I used my cricut machine to cut those out. The cardstock is something I already had, so nothing out of pocket there. I used various font cartridges (All Mixed Up, Simply Sweet, Cuttin Up, Jasmine, George & Basic Shapes and Jubilee cartridges). I just used regular scrapbooking glue (the good stuff) to glue everything together.
So, I love my daughter’s clock 🙂 But, I wanted more for just the wall. I needed something surrounding the clock.. so.. added a bunch of words cut from my cricut. The final result:
Loving this wall in my daughter’s playroom! And for under $20, just makes it even more awesome 🙂
