Make this Blossom an Awesome Clock

Every spring the store shelves are flooded with metal garden decorations. Flowers, butterflies, dragonflies, fruits and veggies and picket fences. I set out to find something that would make a funky clock. Note the 'make' in that sentence. I wanted something that no one else had. And I struck gold with this awesome blossom.


It's absolutely perfect with the dome center and 12 petals in the middle. I bought two, one in purple and one in burgandy cause you know I'm going to have to give one away as a gift too!

It took a little cutting and a lot of hammering to get a square time piece into a round dome without damaging the piece (eat your heart out NASA) but the finished product came out great. It's fine now for an adult but if it ends up in a child's room it'll be easy enough to add numbered stickers to the tip of each petal. And with those half price sales at Hobby Lobby, this blossom clock comes in at around $15.
