I loved the clock face on the wall!My husband is normally really great about letting me run with my ideas. So after we put the girls to bed last night I “ran” to Joann. I bought two hoops and some wooden sticks.
**Materials:Â (1) 23″ Quilt hoop, (1) 14″ Quilt hoop, bag of Woodsies brand sticks (found at Joann’s) **
I removed the outer hoop and started working around the, soon to be, clock face. I used Gorilla Glue, but I’m sure wood glue would work too. I did not cut any of the sticks before I put them on, I just tried to line up the inside and leave the overhang on the outer edge.
The “X” was the trickiest and I just used whatever I could find to hold them down. I let it dry overnight.
**You could also use hot glue, but I don’t know how well it will hold up.**
Then I used a pair of pliers to break them off. Try not to pull on the wood, it will splinter. Just hold the stick, so it doesn’t detach and work the pliers up and down. It will remove the wood clean.
And here’s the finished project.
What do ya think?? Looks a lot like the PB pic, don’t you think!
It is still icy and miserable outside, so we won’t be getting out much.Â I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
