Husband was cutting up some wood to burn on the fire the other day and he thought he was showing off his cutting skills by making a heart shape in the wood for me. I immediately saw a making activity and promptly asked him to cut a better heart shape (from my own drawing) so I could turn it into a clock.
Bet husband wished he wasn't so good with his jigsaw.
I used flower buttons for the numbers and ordered a clock mechanism from Amazon. All I had to do (with help from my lovely assistant, husband) was chisel out a section on the back of the clock for the mechanism to fit so the heart was flat to the wall when it was hung up.
I painted the heart in green to match my kitchen units which are the same colour.
Am really pleased with the finished look.
