Quirky Felt Clock


With A Blast: Quirky Felt Clock  {easy DIY}  #crafts #felt  #quirky #fun


I pinned a similar wall clock a while back, and knew I would make it soon. Every time I looked at the pic, I had to smile - it's just so different !

It took me about an hour to finish, so you can quickly make one if you have everything on hand.

I tried to find the original source but ran in circles - don't you just hate when that happens? Anyhow, HERE is the link to the image {scroll down to #12} I pinned if you'd like to take a peek at what caused my interest!


With A Blast: Quirky Felt Clock   (step-by-step)

Here is the quick rundown on how I made mine:

1.) You will need a piece of Felt / same size piece of Cardboard and a suitable picture {there are many on the internet} - sizes of the Felt & Cardboard is totally up to you.
2.) Trace the picture onto the Felt {draw on the side which will be the back} and cut it out carefully.
3.) Trace the same picture onto the same spot on the Cardboard and cut this out too {cut a little extra in order for none to stick out}
4.) Glue the Felt & Cardboard together - lining up the open cut-outs - glue the cut-out man as in pic 4 {hands to hands}
5.) Because my clock is so small, the battery piece of the clock mechanism stuck out under the opening.
6.) I made this clock for Dimitri's room and therefore used some leftover paint {the color he used on his walls} to paint the black piece of mechanism sticking out - it blends in well with the wall now. Lastly I added the clock arms and 4 small mirror mosaic tiles - for the 12 / 3 / 6 / 9 o'clock spaces.

I did not want to add any more detail to this, as I want the main focus to be on the hanging dude!

Do you think this looks funny or interesting? Hope I am not the only one that finds it a bit on the humor side ;-) Let me know what you think and whether you will make one {also where would you hang a clock like this! }
