A Fairy Clock in 15 minutes

Altered Fairy Clock
My sister had a clear out and asked me if I wanted this clock, boxed and unused, well I never like to say no!
Picture 098
I left it lying around in the kitchen for a while and then yesterday afternoon I had a brainwave.  First I checked to see if I could take the front  off, which I could and then how much space there was under the hands.
Poundworld Puffy Stickers
I didn’t have a theme in mind, so I just looked through some of the stickers I had.  They needed to be fairly big as I wanted them to cover some of the numbers on the face completely. These stickers that I got from Poundworld the other week (now reduced to buy 2 get 1 free), were perfect, and I especially like the way they are also textured.
Fairy Clock
The rest was simple. I just stuck the fairies and flowers carefully into position on the clock face, and then added smaller flowers to the hands using a little glue.  In all this took me no more than 15mins. I usually ignore cheap clocks in Home Bargains etc. but now I have made this, I want to make more. Wouldn’t it be cute to make a Christmas clock?

Helen, that's fab! I made a similar clock as a joke present for my Mum for Christmas. It was a slant on the bird clocks you see in the Betterware type catalogues... she now has it in her hallway!!!
