I remembered a friend doing this craft on her blog a REALLY long time ago (right, Sarah?), thought it was cute, but didn't have a need for it at the time. Well, lucky for me, I recently was in need of a clock. So, I found my old one we got years ago, and spruced it up to fit my current, crafty style! It's always fun to see something go from old to new, especially knowing it was all totally free!!!
Materials used: Old clock that could use a makeover, scrapbook paper I had on hand that matched my bathroom colors and was pretty clever with the clock theme, leftover paint in my garage from when the walls were painted in our house. I just used a sponge brush, and did kind of a light coat of paint so that it was streaky and showed a bit of the original wood. It gave the clock a "used" look to it, and I like it. I also used modge podge over the scrap book paper before putting the hands back on. But I would not recommend doing so; it made me paper bumpy instead of flat and smooth. Or maybe you are better with modge podge than I am, and you can pull it off. This was a lot of fun, quick, and free! I'm pleased.
