Owl Clock

Owl Clock

I realize I've been sharing a lot more crafts than food with you lately, but I just had to show you my latest creation.  I got the idea from Artzy Creations, but I had to adapt a little because I couldn't find a wood cutout in the shape of an owl (or anything big enough for a clock, really).  So I bought another shape I liked, thinking I'd just do something abstract, and halfway through I realized it was still looking like an owl, so I just went for it.  I am really happy with how it came out!


You can find all of the instructions over on Artzy Creations.  I got all of my pieces at Michael's.  The paper I used was for sale on the 25 cent rack!  I got a few packs with all different patterns - I think I'll be able to use them for lots of crafts.


The only major problem I encountered was that, because I used a big piece of wood and not a wood cut out, the clock wasn't long enough to go all the way through the wood.  I needed to take a big hunk of wood out of the back for the clock to fit in.  Of course, I don't have any very fancy tools, so I went to the hardware store and for $5 they did it for me!  It was a great deal if you ask me.


And while we're talking crafts, I also decoupaged this vase with some tissue paper I had around the house.   Then I picked up these flowers for only $3.99 at Trader Joe's on Sunday - my place feels so fun and autumnal!  It was a very crafty week!  What do you think of my mod podge creations?  I am pretty excited about them!  Don't worry though, there is a food recipe coming soon!
