Old clock faces really make my heart sing. I always keep an eye out for them while out treasure hunting but never seem to have any luck. So for April’s Pinterest Challenge hosted by the lovely Erelene from over at My Pinterventures I’ve decided to try making some of my own. Sharing some DIY Vintage Farmhouse Clock Faces using Old CDs.
DIY Vintage Farmhouse Clock Faces using Old CD’s
Being a music lover, I have thousands of CDs that I no longer use thanks to Spotify. So I couldn’t think of a better way than to repurpose them with this project.
- Old CDs
- Sweet Pickins Milk Paint – Top Coat
- Clock Face Printables – I found these fabulous Clock Face Printables over on The Mermaid’s Tale
- White A4 Card Stock
- Paint Brush
- Americana Deco Art Acrylic Paint – Lamp Black
- Old Frame
- Glue Gun
Step 1 – Print out the clock faces onto your cardstock. Cut out carefully around the edges.
Step 2 – Paint a ring of black paint around the edges of your CDS. Let dry.
Step 3 – Paint a layer of top coat over the entire CD and the back of the clock face. Align the clock face with the centre of the CD and rub over to remove any air bubbles.
Step 4 – Add other coat of Top Coat to the entire clock face to seal. Let dry.
Step 5 – Cut various lengths of jute to have the clocks hanging at various heights. Glue gun to the back of your CD.
Step 6 – Fasten the CDs to the top of your frame with glue. Let dry.
Step 7 – Tie some jute at the top of the CDs.
There you have a fun way to use up old CDs and a nice way to add some Vintage Farmhouse Charm to your home. I plan on making some more to add to vignettes around our home too!
