Frenchy Clock Update
Yesterday I shared a basket for holding keys that I made by cutting apart a wire trash can from the Dollar Tree. Today I thought I would share a clock that I updated using the top portion of that same wire trash can.
To see the instructions for this wire basket, go here.
Taking the top portion that I had removed, I cut off about another 1 1/2 inches to form a wire ribbon. See the bow I fashioned from it above. Next, I laid the remaining metal ring on a table with the cut wire facing up. I began stretching and pressing the wire flat until it formed a nice wreath shape.
This is a picture of the clock before I added the wire trim.
Using hot glue, I simply attached the wreath to the back of the clock. This is how the clock looks after adding the trim. Just a fun little update using some wire that would have otherwise been trash. I think it gives the clock a little extra French-appeal.
I have another idea of what to do with the wreath, but I'm not able to finish it yet - perhaps soon.
Uh-oh, would you look at the time (pun intended)? My grandbaby is now 4 days overdue!!! I guess I better run. Where is she?
Thanks for stopping by,
