Hey everyone, Katie here!
Since we are featuring clocks here on the Walnut Hollow blog this month, I had to make a clock using Walnut Hollows new Hexagon Wall Decor as a gift for my Mom! My Mom is a quilter and loves making little sewn hexagons and I knew this would go perfect in her sewing studio!
- 1 Small Hexagon Wall Decor
- Creative Versa Tool Wood Burner
- Stamping Tips
- Universal Point
- Acrylic Paints
- #1/2″ Paint Brush
- Paper Hexagon
- Sawtooth Picture Framer Hanger
- 1/4″ Clock Movement
- Use a hexagon template and pencil to trace a hexagon pattern onto the backside (now the front side for this project!) of the Hexagon Box.
2. Use the Creative Versa Tool with the Universal Point to burn the hexagon pattern into the wood. I love the versa tool for wood burning, combined with the universal tip I get nice clean lines without much effort.
3. Use acrylic paint to color in the hexagons. Use whatever color scheme you’re loving/matches your decor the best. I used 4 different colors and left a few hexies the unpainted solid wood.
4. Once you have all of the hexagons colored in, paint on numbers for the clock face, outline them with black to make them stand out.
5. Use stamping tips (they come with the Creative Versa Tool!) to add pattern to the different hexagon shapes. I like this because it almost makes the different hexagons look like fabrics.
6. Drill a small hole in the center of your hexagon to place your clock movement through and follow the instructions on the movement packaging on how to install the hands.
(At this point I also decided to paint the frame around the hexagon.)
Hang and enjoy! I love that this clock is so much more unique than your normal old store bought clocks!
