Howdy! So, last weekend, I was poking around my favorite craft sites, (as usual) and I happened upon this very craft challenge! Immediately, I set to work, and went through all the hidden 'junk' in my house.  I found, among other things, a lovely little old fashioned clock I remember buying at a huge summer garage sale for 2 dollars.  I set the set to work!  This is the original clock:


And here it is, spiffier:






I would like to note, that the octopus's name is Wally, and the dinosaur is Larry.  Cheesy, they really like to have tea parties.

I LOVE IT!!! I'm totally going to wist this when I'm back on my lappy instead of a dumb ole work computer!... dinosaurs are the coolest things around (well.. that were around I guess)

And on a side note Octopus's Garden is my new favorite Beatles song.. I basically need to make this clock for myself Smiley

Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing!!

Aaaahhhh! Too Cute!
When I first saw the picture of it I assumed it would be painted and refaced. This is so so much better.

To put the pieces on, I made foil lumps that were the same shapes as the clock curve, then backed the clay guys, and glued them on with E-6000, though any super strong glue would probably work.  Also, the dinosaurs name is Larry, and the octopus is Wally  Smiley.
Thanks for all the great comments!

The fact that Larry can breath under water to tea party with Wally is truly a fete. This is a fabulous clock. Someone saw it over my shoulder (god I hate when people do that) and thought it was for a kids room, don't worry I was quick to correct that whimsy is for everyone.
