Stamped Trivet Clock

Ready to use some power tools! Okay, it's one drill (or an awl if you don't have a drill) But still there aren't a lot of projects on here that let you use a power tool, but that ends today!

If you make this trivet clock, you’ll have the time of your life! Ha! 

You'll need:
Cork Trivet
Ruler
Clock kit (make sure it is tall enough to go through your trivet)
Rubber Stamps
Acrylic Paint
Paint Brush
2 Pieces of Felt (or one for each color)
Drill or Awl to make the hole in the trivet



First find and mark the center of your trivet using a ruler on the back of the trivet. 

Then drill or make a hole making sure your clock piece fits through. I used a 5/16 drill bit.

Now decorate your clock! I wanted mine bright and 80's looking (but I think I got 90's Minnie Mouse) I started by painting the background a pink and let that fully dry.

Then added the stamps as bold details. Use this tutorial to see how to make your own "ink pads" with felt and acrylic paint.

 

Once your clock face is decorated and fully dry you can now assemble your clock according to the package instructions. 

Put in a battery and hang it on the wall! A lot of these clock kits don't have keyholes to hang them with; I used a Command Adhesive strip on the back of the clock mechanism.

Time flies when you are having fun!
