Repurposed Placemat Clock #6

It might as well be spring if you put this repurposed Pier One Import placemat clock on your wall!  This is one of the easiest makeovers I have done with my pile of placemats.

Step One:  The diameter of the placemat is too large for the wall clock so carefully cut the outside edge of layer #4 so only three layers of petals are left.

That makes the final diameter approx. 12″

This photo shows how much of the back material you need to cut:  only about .5″.

Step Two:  cut a white foam board 12″ in diameter and glue it to the back.

Step Three:  from the front center, punch a hole with an awl and use a pencil to make the hole big enough for clock works.

Step Four:  Print out the clock face provided or make your own clock face.

Step Five:  Using glue stick attach your clock face to a heavy piece of mat board or sheet metal and cut out.

Step Six:  Punch a hole in the clock face big enough so the clock movement will fit.  ‘

Step Seven: Assemble the clock.

I had a little shrink film dragonfly that I added to the clock face for a bit of whimsy.
