Have you seen what folks do with vintage clocks? I have taken one apart before and made it into a gift. It looks a lot easier than it is to convert an alarm clock! This clock will be a fun gift to give to my son and daughter-in-law because it features a printout of their home….on a wintery Christmas night.
I found this faux clock at a garage sale for $2.00 but you can get them at most craft stores or online for about $10.00 if you get inspired to make this OOAK personalized Christmas craft.
This is what the Tim Holtz clock looks like. They are super easy to decorate.
To make mine, I covered a round piece of cardstock that completely covered the removable back with black glitter. I had some little gold stars that I attached after the glitter was dry.
Next I printed out my son and daughter-in-law’s house on heavy cardstock. After I printed it and cut it out, I put a nice thick layer of crystal glitter on the house edges to simulate snow.
To finish the project, add about 1 inch of crystal glitter to the clock and press the back in place securely. Last, I printed out a little banner to decorate the front.
I love personalized gifts and the cool thing is that since you can still remove the back my daughter-in-law can update it with her ideas if she wants to.
This idea is very simple but here are some really inspiring ideas that take a little more time:
These altered clocks are so pretty, but I like mine the best because it is personalized and OOAK. It will be fun to tuck in a Christmas gift bag and give it to my daughter-in-law.
