Winter Snow Scene in Repurposed Clock

Hi Friends!
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
I always wait until the weekend after to start my decorating for Christmas...
although my craft room has looked like Christmas since summer.
I found both of these clocks at the flea market.
Neither one worked , but I love clocks just for décor.
The mantel clock was in good shape but my plans were
to take it apart...sorry if that makes you gasp out loud.




I don't know what happened to the pictures


of the empty clocks, but here is the backside!


 
 
 


The Baby Ben clock had the front cover melted somehow


but the outer case was fine.





Taking out the clockworks was easy,


just by removing a couple of screws.


I saved the face plate and some parts for other projects.













I printed this postcard/label to use as the background Winter scene.


For my clock, I adjusted the size to 5'' x 7''





Measure your clock and make a pattern of the background with a blank paper.


I also cut out the birds, I wanted to glue them in the trees.


These cuticle scissors work great for tiny detail cuts!






I used Tacky glue to add the paper background, then


I added my handmade snowman and a bleached sisal tree.




 With the tacky glue I was able to add glitter to the roof of the house,


 the tops of the fence and on the tree branches.





Can you see the birds on top of the trees?








I put the glass cover back on the mantle clock.


The small clock has an open front.


Sorry about the glare.






I hope you enjoyed this Winter Snow Scene!


May I say, '' MERRY CHRISTMAS! "


Thank you for visiting today, I appreciate you so much.

  1. Love this and can see using different background and decorations inside for about any theme you want...and could be left out year around. Now if my local thrift shop would just have some neat old clocks!!!

      Thank you so much. I made one for Spring last year, but I love old clocks and hate to take them apart unless they are in really bad shape.

  2. Absolutely love them!!! I have a pink baby Ben I found that didnt work, took apart and was going to do something similar. Time got away from me, wont be able to do it by Christmas. Was thinking maybe for Spring, or start in Spring for next Christmas. Lol. Love what you did. I have a thing for clocks too, working or not.��

      No, The snowmen are just about the only thing I don't share. I sell them at craft fairs.

  9. These are so cute. I love clocks but try to only collect tiny ones for my dollhouses as all my different collections have taken over my house. Will keep my eye open for possible "containers." Yours are adorable. I use old Christmas cards and calendar pages for "backdrops"; they work well, too.
