It was very easy (the hardest thing was waiting for the paint to dry long enough!), but has a huge impact. It's nearly 2 feet in diameter!
Back in April, 2010, Real Simple Magazine had an issue with multiple covers, and one of them had this clock on it:
Scott Henderson said, “The effect is a non-stop – and somewhat chaotic – interpretation of time.” Which describes my life and sense of time so perfectly! I kept thinking about it and thinking about it. If I could have, I would have bought it--to heck with the price tag. But alas, I could not find it anywhere.
Next best thing? Make my own, of course!
I decided on a wall clock. I've been wanting a nice, huge, gorgeous clock for my kitchen, but there was always something higher on the budget's priority list.
I bought the hands from Amazon. There are a few options for clocks like this, so browse around!
I traced the clock on my computer and cut out the vinyl on my Silhouette. Being so big, the clock is in several pieces, but I matched them as carefully as I could. When you are at my house, feel free to look close and find all the seams.
I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love. But I do need your advice. I'm very VERY tempted to paint the hands of my clock a bright orange-y yellow, like in my inspiration.
Roughly Photoshopped, I'm thinking like this:
If you (like my husband--sorry dearie) don't like that it is a bit difficult to read, imagine doing a similar clock with different sizes and fonts for the numbers! I think I'll have to do another one somewhere else because this project was SO FUN!
