I have had the best time Guest Designing here on Everyday Cricut for the last week! If you have not had a chance to subscribe to my blog be sure to take a moment right now and do so. I hope that I have brought some homemade gift inspiration to you and have gotten your creative juices running!
With Christmas just around the corner, I decided to create a Whimsically Wacky Wall Clock for my youngest daughters room. I wanted it to be a one of a kind and very colorful. I used Birthday Bash as the Cricut Cartridge of choice and boy oh boy was I excited when I finished it! I made sure that the cardstock I was using matched her room perfectly and then just went to town creating! (Do forgive me for the glare on the clock. I used Liquid Laminate and the lights were reflecting terribly in all my photos.)
Believe it or not this clock from start to finish including Paint and Liquid Laminate Drying, Drilling the Wood and Cutting all the Characters only took 6 hours! Definately worth the time invested!
With the Soldering Wire, wrap the wire around a wooden dowel tightly. Remove from the dowel and using wire cutters cut every 5th loop. With pliers, shape a double loop at one end and a straight area at the other end. The loop end will hold the character and the straight end will will be inserted into the drilled holes.
