French Cloche from Old Clock

by - October 01, 2013

After seeing my sister, Kathy (CreativeHomeExpressions) transform a thrift store clock into a beautiful cloche, I was hooked! Like you probably do, I see these clocks everywhere: garage sales, Goodwill, thrift stores, etc.

This one I picked up from the Unique Thrift Stores last week for $5.99. After removing all of the clock pieces and tape (and boy did they have a LOT of tape wrapped around this thing!), I started by cleaning the glass and spray painting the base white.
Then I printed out some French script onto white cardstock.  I used Mod Podge to add that to the base.
The base is a little bumpy because of the clock inserts but it still works quite nicely as a new cloche.
Here it is all finished.  I'm loving it!  And I'll never look at those old clocks the same way again.
