Halloweeny: A Creepy Clock

I made a spooky thing! A creepy clock! A terrifying timepiece!


A few weeks ago I saw this clock at HomeSense and immediately wanted to make my own.

After searching thrift store for a couple of weeks I finally found a clock that I could use as a base for my own creepy timekeeper.

I cleaned it, sanded it, and covered it with cheap skull beads and other spooky bits from my stash.

I coated the whole thing with black paint, then applied some light paint with a dry brush to bring out the details. 

I actually love the solid black version and might revert back to it at some point, but for now...

... this creepy thing will sit on my mantle in it's current spooky state.

I considered changing the clock face too, but I like the filigree pattern and think it suits the piece, so it stays.

Here's the inspo and my finished piece. I like them both, but I'm proud of the one I hobbled together.

Pop over to THIS insta post to see the making of this piece.

Hope you're good and making your own messes xoxo
