I always get wonderful comments on my clock! So I have decided to write directions, so you also can make your own!
You will need:
12 each 5 X 7 X 1 Wood Blocks
Mod Podge Matte
Vinyl Cut (24.143 X 16.342) “TIME Spent with Family Is worth every SECOND”
I purchased my Clock from Steebar.com. When I priced clocks that size in town, the quotes I was receiving was over $100.
This is what I purchased from Steebar September, 2014 (so the prices might have changed)
|14” Clock Hands for High Torque Clock Motors||HT-8||1||16.75|
|7/16” High Torque Mini Quartz Clock Movement for Large Hands||HT-Mini-A-7||1||14.95|
|Mini Quartz Clock Motor Wall Mount Cup||Wall-Cup||1||5.95|
STOP - If you are not crafty, you could always just purchase this Photo Frame Wall Clock, it’s only 40.00 for the whole thing.
If you are Crafty, follow on!
Step One – Order and Mount your Clock
Order your clock. I am assuming that you are making a clock the same size as I did. You will need that heavy duty motor, because the hands are 14” long! Mount your clock on the wall when it comes in.
After I completed the Clock, the overall size is approx. 44” high and 43” wide.
Step Two – Make your Wood Transfers
While you are waiting for the clock to come in, create your wood transfers. My husband cut 12 each 5 X 7 X 1 pieces of wood and sanded and stained them for me. I have been told you can go to Lowes and they will cut them for you. You could also paint them if you don’t want a antique look.
While he was doing that, I found my photos, sized them to 5 X 7. I choose to print them out in black and white, in Reverse (or Mirrored) on plain ol’ printer paper, from a LASER printer. If you don’t own a laser printer, you could always take your photo’s to a printer like Kinko’s and have them print them out from a LASER.
You can search wood transfer in you tube and find MANY ways and products to use. I choose to use Mod Podge, because I had it.
Step Three – Hang or Apply your Vinyl Cut
Create your Vinyl Cut or I am happy to cut this for you. I do offer this in my Etsy Store.

I am looking forward to seeing your creations! Please post your photos back to this blog!
