Graphic

Time for the third and final project in this round of 1 Supply 3 Projects : Decorative Gift Wrap.
Be sure to catch up on Part 1 and Part 2.

This time we're makin' a clock!

Try This - Decorative Wrapping Paper Clock
1 - Decorative Wrapping Paper Clock - Supplies
Materials: Decorative Gift Wrap, Wood Circle, Complementary-Colored Paint, Paint Brush, Sealer Glue (like Mod Podge), Sponge Brush, Clock Kit, Drill

My wooden circle was 6", and I picked it up from the craft store.  You can buy pre-drilled ones made specifically for the clock kits at most craft stores, but the un-drilled ones are a few bucks cheaper.  Make sure your clock kit is made for the thickness of your wood disk.

Directions:  Paint the edge of the wood in a color that complements your gift wrap.  I went with gold, because, well, I always go with gold.  Gold is like a drug to me.

3 - Decorative Wrapping Paper Clock - Tutorial
Drill a hole big enough for the clock kit in the middle of the wooden circle.

5 - Decorative Wrapping Paper Clock Tutorial
Glue the gift wrap circle to the wooden circle using the Mod Podge
both on the back and the front of the gift wrap.

6 - Decorative Wrapping Paper Clock Tutorial
Let the glue dry, and install the clock kit.

Just about as easy as they come, no?

  1. I love it!!! What about a clock with fabric in an embroidery hoop? Would it hold up to the hardware?

    1. Ooh, interesting idea, Molly. I've got to admit that this little clock kit got my gears turning (no pun intended). I'm trying my hardest not to make like 5 more clocks!

  2. I was thinking the same thing actually. When I saw this on Pinterest, I thought it was an embroidery hoop. I love the way it turned out!

  3. I also thought of using an embroidery hoop. I have some old wooden hoops and this would be a great use for them.

  4. You'll need to put some stiff cardboard cut exactly to inside circumference of the hoop hot glues to it to hold the clock mechanism if you are going to do the embroidery hoop thingy!

    1. Hi, Krissy! A photograph would work great for a project like this! If you print it at home, you'll want to seal with a spray sealer that you can get from the craft store before you decoupage it. Otherwise the inks might bleed.
