How to...

Paint a stencil clock:

I first saw this idea in Martha's magazine and loved it.  Except the stencil from her site was way too big for my printer and the clock hands alone were over $100. Not quite my budget for a project I wasn't sure would look as good as she did it.  So I head to Hobby Lobby.  Bought some $5 clock parts, $3 hands to replace the little gold ones that come with it, and $4 stencils.  $12 compared to $100+  I am happy and so is Dimples.  Actually he didn't care what I was doing.  I start and realize I don't want the whole wall as a clock so I just do the 12, 3, 6 and 9.
That was fine and simple and it stayed that way for several weeks.  Except I had this JoAnns coupon burning a hole in my pocket and my mom came in to go shopping.  Long story short I got some embellishing stencils 40% off and started again.
Little vines, next I added the stems for the flowers.

Now for the finishing touches, the flower tips.

Now you too can have a wall painted stencil clock!

I'd love to. You can look at my stencils or pick some up at Hobby Lobby or Jo-Anns (actually cheaper)and go from there. Just let me know when.
