September 21, 2009

A DIY JUNK PROJECT!!!

Hello blogging friends.  Today I have decided to post a DIY project.  This is a fun and simple craft utilizing thrift store finds.  I have turned silverplated plates into clocks.  This first one is done using a small silver plate---I decoupaged a Paris picture to the front, added some numbers and a clock mechanism.

Simply drill a hole in the center of your plate (large enough for your clock mechanism to fit through).  Then assemble as per instructions that come in the clock kit.  If you have never used a drill, DON'T BE AFRAID, they are very easy and pretty much self explanatory.  The hardware store people can help you pick out the right sized drill bit.
Another easy, peasy junk project brought to you by junk dreams.
Happy day my blogging friends.  A special thank you to all my followers who give purpose to my junking pursuits, and inspiration to my creative spirit.  I enjoy each of your blogs in return!!!
