I always wanted to have an original wall clock that would invite me to travel back in time. The vintage style is my favorite and I thought of making a wall clock faithful to this type of decoration. Now my dining room is happy and it works great! I have no more excuses to be late nowhere. Do you want to learn how to do it? Keep reading.
What will you need?
- A 45 cm diameter (18 inches) circular pine wood table
- Acrylic paint white and brown
- Vinyl glue for wood
- Clock machines and, of course, needles
- Images of Roman numerals or printed numbers (you can do them yourself with Word or any other text editor)
- Mod Poge glue
- A hook to hang on the wall
How to Make Vintage Wall Clock
1.Measure the size of the clock and drill the center of the wooden board until you make a hole of the same size.
2.Leave the machine aside and paint all the brown wood. This will be the color of the background.
3.Allow to dry very well and cover the whole board with vinyl glue carpenter.
4.When the surface begins to get sticky to the touch and semiseca, begins to paint with white color. Wait for it to dry and you will see how it cracks and acquires a very pleasant old tone.
5.Cover the area where the numbers will go with the Mod Poge glue and glue each image upside down to transfer it to the wood (pay attention to how you print them, so they do not stick you upside down).
6.Let it dry for 24 hours or more.
7.Wet the paper you hit with the numbers images until you can see them.
8.Fleet to remove excess paper in a soft and calm form. Do not make it too strong because you can also remove the numbers and we do not want that!
9.If the paper has dried before and you finish removing it, wet it again.
10.If you wish, following the same method, you can place a background image to your vintage wall clock.
11.To finish, add the clock machine and needles following the package instructions.
12.Put the hook on the back and hang it on the wall in a visible place.
It’s very easy to do, right? This vintage watch is wonderful, because, in addition to decorating our walls, it also fulfills a very useful function, does not let us be late!
