School is starting, which means early mornings and getting ready are back on the agenda. To ensure everyone gets where they need to be on time – a new clock is the exact thing we need. Crafting one out of wood and paint creates a unique look that can jive with any house decor – even if you love hot pink sofas and palm branches!
Try your hand at wood burning for the first time and make a clock to brighten up your own back to school routine this fall season. The best thing is that with the wooden clock set you don’t even have to know anything about clock gears to make this happen. Hi, I’m Victoria from A Subtle Revelry, today I will show you how to make a DIY Woodburn Clock.
1. If you’ve never used a wood burner before this is a great project to try one out on. The one we used comes with 4 different tops and it works best to use a scrap piece of wood to try out the pressure and burning before getting to work on the clock.
2. Once you have the trial down, start by gently tracing your design in pencil on the wooden clock. This will give you a good link to follow while making the project. The wood burner can be used to make outside lines and also the interior texture we created on our palm leafs.
3. Once the wood is burned, paint your design onto the clock. We burned the outline and texture, then painted the clock and then re-burned the outline to get the solid black line.
4. Once the paint is dry, replace the clock gears and stick on the numbers to ensure everyone is on time this fall!
