Cake Pan Clock

|Decorative clock made from a dollar store cake pan.|
Begin by gathering your supplies. You will need:
A cake pan (I got mine from the dollar store)
A Clock mechanism (great item to use a coupon on)
Pattern paper - Teresa Collins lines are Georgous!
So this is how my project started.....
1. Begin by marking the center of your pan. Use your drill (yea, power tools), to make a hole that your clock mechanism will fit through.
2. Take your cake pan and turn it upside-down. Draw a circle the size of the bottom of your pan and cut it out. (Note: The black and ivory paper is the opposite side to the Teresa Collins Fabrications Linen Green Fleur De Lis)
3. Adhere the paper circle to the bottom of the cake pan, and poke a hole in the paper where your center hole is. The paper hung over a tiny bit, so I rolled the edges to give a bit of texture and interest.
4. Start adding your embellishment to the front of your clock. I used several of the pieces from the Teressa Collins die cut sheet. Use pop dots to give some dimension. You can also add petaloo flowers, Teresa Collins buttons and some of the stickers from the Fabrication Linen line. I added the Teressa Collins rhinestones and brads for the numbers. Make sure you have a hole for the clock to go into.
5. Put your clock mechanism through the hole and add the hands.
6. Cut 3/4 inch strips of the Teressa Collins green brocade. Line the strip up against the edge of the pan, fold it back and forth to create the curved ruffle. Glue it to the pan.
And there you have it! I hope that this project has inspired you to create something new. I would love to see it, post a picture on The Hens' Den gallery for a chance to win $10.00 store credit.
