Working and communicating with people globally is the way of life.  We are required to accommodate different time zones on a daily basis.  Either your work schedule or most of us have family members who live around the world, there isn’t a way to get around it. Today, I would like to share with you a fun time zone clock project.  I wanted these clocks white, however, these beautiful clock panels are 3/4 inch thick and the edges were just calling for a touch of color.

You only need a few things to get started.  Here we go:


Creative Versa Burner Tool
3/4 ” Clock Kits
Circle Panel Clock – 10X10″
Acrylic Paints
Foam Brushes
Design Templates
Scoring Tool or Pencil
Washi Tape

Step One:   Paint the edge of your panels.  Let dry.  And also the front of your panels.  Let dry.

Step Two:   Print out your desired design.  Using washi tape, place your design template onto the panel and trace with either a tracing tool or pencil.  You want to use firm pressure so you are able to see the score lines once the template has been removed.

Time Zone Clock Step 3

Step Three:  Set your Versa Tool to the temperature according to the directions. Trace the score lines. You can go over the score lines until you have your desired wood burn look.

Time Zone Clock Step 4

Step Four:   Add your clock movement parts.  Set the time, add batteries and hang.
