Vintage clock face Christmas or New Years ornaments

Hi guys! I have been busy this week. My Etsy shops really picked up lately (yay!) thanks to the new relevancy based search there. I have been listing things and making things and got to a couple cool estate sales again today. I didn't even get to post about the one we went to last weekend yet! Well last weekend I found these wonderful vintage clock faces at an estate sale. I wanted to make them into something so I brainstormed for a couple days and came up with these..and a few more things that are as yet on my "brain-ial" drawingboard. I should jot them down before I forget! These are ornaments I made with photos I took of those clock faces. They are glued to chip board and have glittered edges (of course!)
I layered a couple images to cover the holes in the middle of some and also, I just liked how it looked! I love the shabby staining on this one! (for those new to my blog I use exclamation points! A LOT!!)
I covered the backs with vintage French to English dictionary pages because I love text and I picked up a couple new words whilst glueing!
These turned out with a golden, cream and black color scheme that I am reaaaaally liking!
I liberated some of my antique mother of pearl buttons from by button jar for these..
This clock face was amazing..the little inserts behind the numbers was inlaid mother of pearl..so ornate!
I think this is my fav...most are round but there are a few that were square or otherly shaped. This one had applied metal numerals and just the sweetest shabbiness! I ended up making 31 (!) of these. I hope they sell so I can make more! I thought they would be cute on a tree, wreath or used as decor..I'd hang them from my chandelier!Hoping you are having a great week too! Until next time, Julia
