Kids Room Clock!

This is a project that I have been working on for a few months... in my defense a lot has happened in our family during that time... it seemed like I would start this clock and then something would happen... 
So I am very glad that it is finally completed!

I picked up this clock at the Sally Ann back in the spring, knowing I wanted to do exactly this project!
Not so cute hey...

So I turned it into this!
(I thought that I had pictures of this progress but it seems that I just have the before and after... oops. I know I'm a bad bad craft blogger... oh well ha ha)
I started by painting it green it took about 3 coats to cover up that pink...
Then I took my "high tech" circle templates that I used in this project that I did for the kids room and repeated the pattern I used in that project just a little more scattered...

I added the numbers using my "pencil-picture transfer method" that I use frequently like here (in the Winnie the pooh paintings) and here (on the motorcycle coasters). 
Basically I printed off some numbers I liked, rubbed the back of the paper with a pencil, placed the number on the clock and traced on to the clock. Then you can paint the number or just fill it in with Sharpie like I did which saves a bit of time and can be more precise if you don't have a steady hand...

So my clock turned out GREAT (if you ask me) and Delaney loves it! What I love is it is a brand new clock for $3 and I am able to say "Hey I did that!"!

Have you made over anything fun lately? Do you make the decor for your kids room? I'd love to hear all about it in the comments!
