Transform a $2 Ikea clock into this colorful cheer-themed version using buttons, ribbon and “Me & My Peeps” decals (designed by my friend Laura Kelly). Plus, there’s a giveaway at the end of the post!
I started the project with a plain RUSCH clock from Ikea, with a white face, and black numbers and hands. It was functional, but not very pretty–a perfect surface to add some creativity and color!
I wanted the color to be the focus, so I replaced the standard clock face with textured white cardstock. Then I added the bright buttons (also Laura Kelly licensed products) around the outside of the face to represent the numbers.
For my cheerleader, I used a “Me & My Peeps” little girl decal attached and cut from red cardstock. I used detail scissors and hand cut the arms from the girl before attaching the body to the cardstock.
In order to make the cheerleader’s arms into clock hands, I attached them separately to smaller cardstock pieces and glued them to the original clock hands. Pom-poms made from dotted ribbon were topped with pom-pom decals (attached to pieces of the clear decal packaging) and glued to the ends.
