DIY Wall Clock Idea

By: Julie Lewis
Julie Lewis
Julie Lewis
Julie Lewis was destined to be an artist…at least that was what she was told from Kindergarten on. Born outside of Cleveland, Ohio, she was blessed to have been given an incredible art education all through her school years and from her creative and talented parents. Growing up in a world where every day brought some new creative adventure, it was no surprise that she went on to graduate from the Cleveland Institute of Art with a B.F.A. in graphic design. Her professional life included working in many fields from industrial advertising to American Greetings. Most gratifying was working as a designer for the largest craft company, Plaid Enterprises in Georgia where she now resides.She paints and creates felt soft sculptures inspired by said paintings and now sells them through her shop STELLALOLA on Etsy. She is inspired by many things around her…most importantly, a wonderful family, an insanely happy German Shepherd and one stoic Alaskan Malamut.

Instructions

  1. Enlarge the free downloadable pattern if needed to be larger than the bottom of the tray. Remember to copy on good quality cardstock.
  2. Fill in the colors of the paint by number using the smallest liner brush.
  3. Spray the gold hands and any parts that will show on the outside of the tray with white spray paint. Let dry.
  4. Find center on the tray by drawing a line from one corner to another diagonally on the bottom of the tray. Draw a second line from the opposite corner to corner. Where they intersect is center.
  5. Drill a hole in the center of the tray.
  6. Make a tracing of the inside bottom of the tray. This is your template to cut the painted leaves.
  7. Place the tracing over your paint by number and carefully cut out.
  8. Apply Mod Podge to the inside bottom of the tray. Place painted leaves inside the tray, cover with wax paper and smooth with squeegee to remove any bubbles. Let dry.
  9. Use the pencil to carefully punch a hole in the center of the tray where the clock shaft will come through. Punch from inside out to prevent any raw edges showing.
  10. Insert clock mechanism and place clock parts in order referring to packaging instructions.
  11. Insert battery to start the clock.
