* Crafting Mom *
I glanced up my stairs from the breakfast room one day and though that looks so boring. I'm like a lot of you, I read magazines on home improvement and decorating, go through Pinterest, and ETSY. I knew a grandfather type of clock would be cool, but it would stick out and make the turn into the bedrooms tight. But then, I saw this clock and I just had to have it.
The clock is a sticker/decal from BLIK I found on Amazon (there is a store with great how to do videos). The face is one I bought at Target. Handsome and I found the center of the space we wanted to hang the clock body. We had a two part installation as this clock came with a pedestal. We decided to crop the pedestal which gave us a good starting spot.
From the back, we rubbed the decal all over. We aligned our centers, pressed and smooth, retreating to eliminate bubbles. Once that step is done, we peeled away the clear transfer, making sure the black pedestal stuck--AND it did.
For the clock body, we trimmed off excess, and repeated the rubbing steps, aligning, etc. This time, we pulled the back off in small increments, smoothing as we went. Eventually, I reached the top where Handsome was holding it on center. Then we peeled off the clear transfer all the way to the bottom, again in increments. Then we hung the battery operated clock face. TADA!
We are about to bust buttons at our new craft. We walk by and think this is way cool.
How did I do?
