My Altered CLock


I have been wanting to alter a clock for a while and one day I went to target and saw this clock on clearense for $3.88! I was so excited and took it straigh home to alter it. I took it apart and sand the outer part od the clock and gave it 3 couts os gesso allowing it to dry in between, so that the acrylic paint it would have something to grab on to. I gathered all my embellishment and whent to town, it was so much fun altering this clock and it sits beautifully in my computer desk, I love it! I hope you can try and alter your own for I know you will love it! Her are some pictures of mine, enjoy :)

I used  the Prima "lyric" collection for the lining and fussy cutted the banner and the clock for the  collection as well.  I also used paper flowers to embellish the clock's face and pearl stems, a metal bird., lace,baby's breath , doilie, and dabbed some vintage white acrylic paint with a make-up sponge in ramdom places.

Here is how the clock looks all together. I tied a double know bow with seam binding that I dies my self with my hand mede glimmer spray  and glued it on the top pf one of the clock bells. I also adhered some petaloo vine all around the clock.

I love how it turned out! and I am sure that if I find another clock I will alter it for sure :)  Hope you have enjoyed the pics and give it a try for your self. and if you do please share it with me for I would love to see it :)
