Wood Burned Dream Catcher Clock


Hi friends! I wish that I could stop time when I enter my studio. Unfortunately, I can’t control the passing of the hours, but I can make them look pretty. I created this dream catcher clock to hang in my craft space. I added a touch of whimsy to this design with wood burned stars, feathers, and a doily clock face. This fun decor piece comes together in almost no time at all!

Step One: Use the Walnut Hollow Creative Versa-Tool and HotStamps to wood burn a star pattern around the edge of the clock face. Note: The Asterisk, Star, Tapered Point, and Star Outline (available with the HOTMARKS Tool) were used on this clock face.

Step Two: Use a dry paintbrush to add a light coat of acrylic paint to the clock face. Rub a wet paper towel over the clock face to remove the majority of the paint.

Step Four: Tie colorful feathers and charms to cording. Tie the embellished cording to the nails and through the holes of the doily on the bottom third of the clock face. Cut a length of blue cording and weave it around the nails. Be creative! This clock face is 14″ across, which is plenty of space to add a fun mix of embellishments in a color palette that lets your personality shine.

I’m currently living in Virginia with my husband and two daughters. I started paper crafting about 9 years ago and have expanded from scrapbooking and now create a little of everything; including cards, tags, ATCs, arches and small gift and home decor items. I frequently find inspiration in music, poetry and pop culture. I’m an active blogger and I like to share my tips and ideas. When I’m not creating art, I enjoy baking, reading, listening to music and spending time outdoors with my family.
