$995 and $1545 um NO!
Still I like the look so I got one of those ideas that you aren’t really sure how or where you’re going to end up?
Come with me on my little journey!
I started out with Elmer’s Foam Board and the lid to a cookie tin. Traced the cookie tin on the foam board, cut out a circle and them smooshed the circle inside the tin. You want a snug fit.
That little gouge doesn’t matter because I cut another circle from some textured cardstock which I glued on top.
The clock face is black vinyl cut using the Tim Holtz Weathered Clock die. I put that on top of the cardstock layer and then mixed up some Envirotex Lite resin which is super easy to use but you need to use it immediately. You can read more about Envirotex here.
Painted the back and sides of the lid with black acrylic paint and painted a furniture leg I picked up at my favorite architectural salvage place for $1. I added a silver bottlecap and wooden ball to the top.
Once the resin was set ( several hours…not patient!), I glued the “clock” onto the “stand”. I added the hands of the clock afterwards on top of the hardened resin for no particular reason. Just did.
I also got to play with my new portable / collapsible light box that Mr. C got me for Christmas! I think it will be a so much fun I won't even miss not going anywhere :)

How cool! I love that you made it for so much less!
I SO LOVE Restoration Hardware anything! They don't have them here in Chicago but they did have them back in Kansas City where we used to live. I would religiously stalk their clearance sales....your clock is ingenious and it looks like you've done it again!
Love this, Carol! The resin was just the extra thing it needed. And I love the new blog wallpaper with the clock on it. ;)
Love how yours looks!
what a great idea! I bet you could easily make it a clock that works with those clock kits from craft stores!
Great idea..very creative!
visiting from CSI :)

These clocks are amazing....but the prices are NOT! Your clock is fabulous and spot on in every way!
Awesome! Love that you made it for so much less as well as repurposed!
