Clocks to fit your personality
Two of these clocks were plain old wood clocks that were taking up space in my storage trunk. The one without glass was going to be tossed in the church garbage but I rescued it! Does a clock really need glass to work? I think not... For stuff like this, make painter markers your friend. Easy lines! The squiggly lines are from a red painter marker. Hard to tell from the pic, but it is a subtle red on black.
I think I used a ring sizer as a stencil for the polka dots in the bottom two pics. See, you just have to look around and be resourceful, not run to Jo Ann's every time you need a craft item!! The bottom clock had a gold metal ring, but I spray painted it silver.
Use whatever colors and design you want to make something that goes with your home decor and personal style! No need to spend $$$ on new!
