DIY: 4 shabby & cottage clock faces

Hi there friends,

I suspect you already know that I have a ‘thing’ for clocks and clock faces!

I’m not sure why they appeal to me so much…. but my collection is quickly growing.

 

In fact, I’ve just added 4 new clock face designs to my own collection and I’m sharing them with you today.

Don’t you just love their shabby gorgeousness?

You can download these printable clock faces from my Boutique HERE.

And there are lots of things you can do with them.

I printed my clock faces on matt photo paper, but you could print them straight onto card.

I designed them to mount perfectly on a CD. Simply cut the designs out and adhere to the CD using Mod Podge. Smooth out any air bubbles with a squeegee and leave to dry. You’ll notice the design has about a 2mm overhang, sand this excess off with a coarse nail file.

That’s it… they really are that simple.

And I think you’ll agree, they will add a lovely pop of sweetness to any shabby or cottage vignette.

Don’t forget, you can download the free .pdf printable HERE.

If you love them, I would appreciate pins to Pinterest, so others may enjoy them too.

  1. Ooooo, these are pretty. TFS Kerryanne. There is just something about a pretty clock, isn’t there.

  2. Lovely, and with a mechanism from ebay and a bit of laquer, you can make them into a real clock …

  3. These are nothing short of gorgeous! And using a CD as backing, brilliant, for an easy conversion to the real thing, when our body clocks are losing time 🙂

      Thank you my gorgeous friend. I always appreciate your support and encouragement of my creative journey and our friendship. Everyone should be lucky enough to have a beautiful friend like you xxx

    Bless your sweet generous heart Kerryanne, these are so beautiful, just happen to have some cd’s to use. What there is about clock faces, especially style you love is becoming my favorite. I am contemplating what special project I could make with these besides making some clocks. Have printed out few extras in anticipation of what my special project could be. I so love your little blue clock, so charming and just right.
    Don’t see things like pretty vintage style clocks here. Makes me miss all the fantastic vintage/antique shops in KY where we lived before CO. What a constant source of treasures to behold. Thank you so much for sharing these clock faces, hope I can think to do something extra special to honor your gift to us.
    Here’s hoping you have wonderful week and rest of May. This weekend is Memorial weekend honoring past service members who have died. Mostly Americans use it to have fun, travel, whatever.

    • Kerryanne says:

      Thank you for your sweet words JaneEllen. You are always so grateful for my freebies and I do appreciate that. I know you will make something absolutely gorgeous with your printed clock faces.
      All the best to you my friend xx

  5. Thank you so much Kerryanne. Absolutely beautiful!

  6. Dear Kerryanne:

    I love the clock faces and have already pinned them and printed them off. Thank you so much; you are too, too generous!
    Hugs, Linda

    Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful clock faces! And how very clever of you to size them for CD’s! Like you, I have always had a “thing” for clocks, probably because my mother did as well. She had a clock in every single room in our house; some rooms had multiple clocks. It’s funny how you pick up traits like that from your childhood; I have found myself doing the same thing. We have a craft supply store here (Oregon, USA) called Michaels, which has a very good selection of clock mechanisms for sale. I’m looking forward to making several Shabby Art Boutique clocks!
    Warm Regards, Lisa in Oregon ♥

      I suspect there is a whole community of us clock lovers out there Lisa 🙂
      Your plan to make them into actual clocks is fabulous. I hope you’ll share them with us at Shabbilicious Friday.
      Happy crafting – Kerry

  8. I love love love these but can’t seem to download them. When I go to the Woodberry Designs download area, I just get a black screen! I’ll keep trying though. Haven’t had this problem before. I too love the look of the vintage clock faces and so did my mom. I have at least one clock in every room, and would love to make one from one of your designs. You are so sweet to give these to us for free! Thank you so much.. Marilyn from Oregon.

    • Kerryanne says:

      Hi Marilyn,
      I’m sorry to hear you are having an issue opening the .pdf page. I’ve just checked my website from several different browsers and it is opening okay for me and it is still showing downloads, so I’m not sure what the problem is where you are. Maybe try opening in a different browser eg, Chrome, Firefox etc. Please let me know if you are having issues with this and I’ll organise to get that file to you. Happy clock making – Kerry 🙂

  9. I have been looking for some clock faces just like this. You are so talented. Thanks for sharing so the rest of us can enjoy. I happily downloaded mine already 🙂
    have a wonderful day my beautiful friend.

  10. These are darling! What a cute idea! Thanks for sharing Kerryanne!!

  11. Your clock faces are adorable! I love the idea of putting them on cds, so clever.

    • Kerryanne says:

      Thanks Sheila. I think the CD size is also perfect for tucking into vignettes. Hugs – Kerryanne

  12. Sooooo cute. I have had a wooden clock blank for years. Could never decide how to finish it, now I will use one of these for the clock, make plates and coasters. These are TERRIFIC!!!!!!

  13. So pretty! I want them, Now you got me hooked in looking for these pretty clock faces! Great ideas There are so many ways to display them. I could look at them forever. I love beautiful things

  14. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely clock faces! So pretty!

  15. These are fabulous, Kerryanne. Thanks so much for sharing. Beautiful blog.

  16. Dear Kerryanne,
    your works are very beautuful, I love them. Thank you for sharing.
    Please note that there is a little mistake in your clocks: the number four is wrong. It should be “IV” and not “IIII”.
    A great hug from Italy!!
    Anna

    • Kerryanne says:

      Thank you Anna. I know about the Roman numerals, but thank you for taking the time to mention it… I’ve used a vintage clock face and that was the way it was laid out. No one seems to mind though 🙂
