Hi, Merry Christmas and welcome to this little clock dial ornament tutorial….I’m so glad you came to take a look-see!
Above are pictured a few of my real clock dials from Christmas 2010.
I was inspired to use clocks on my tree from a cute store in Leesburg, Virginia!!
I finely located these pics and the website so you can see how cute their tree is!!!
I have some real clock dials as ornaments, but I needed some more, so I decided to save money and make my own. First, I took a picture of a clock face, made copies, and cut two of them out. Click Clock for a free download pdf file in case you are interested in printing them and making some yourself. It might look a little fuzzy but when you print it the size is smaller and much more clear. I’ll be adding more pictures of different dials in the next few days. Click here ,I just added another style.
I then decided I would use a cd as the base to glue on the two faces (front & back). It was the perfect fit and has a hole in the middle…Bingo!!
I painted on Mod Podge to act as the glue for the paper to stick.
After those were glued, front and back I painted both exterior sides with Mod Podge and let it dry. You can also use a little heavier paper and no modpodge on the outside. Then I poked a hole in the middle and added twine for hanging.
BTW: I put a few premades on etsy. You can find the store on my side bar….over there on the upper right 🙂
To make the little banners…. I just printed off the words, cut them in stripes, and glued them together.
For the garland I used twine and glued folded over newsprint triangles spaced appox every 4 inches.
