DIY Wood Bunny Clock

I'll be taking a break from blogging this week, but I have some super talented friends who have graciously accepted to take over my blog for the week.  They all share a love for DIY and creating thrifty projects for your home.  You may even notice some of these sweet girls from our monthly DIY challenges.  I hope you'll take a minute to check out their blogs and don't forget to say hi!

Hey There!!! I'm Leigh Anne and I blog over at Houseologie about DIY and Home Decor. I'm currently working on finishing up our combined laundry room/craft room makeover and my 5 year old daughter's bedroom. I'm so excited to be here guest posting for Katie. Isn't she so talented and just the SWEETEST?! Today I thought I'd share a little bunny clock tutorial that I made for my 5 year old daughter's bedroom. Her name is Sophia and she LOVES animals, so naturally that's the direction I've taken her bedroom in. She even has a REAL pet bunny, named Hoppie. He's an English Angora, so keep your eye open you might spot him in a picture or two ;-)

Materials Need: Wood Clock Face 1 Strip Balsa Wood Something round for tracing Pencil Clock Kit AA Battery
Bunny Clock Materials
Steps: This is seriously a SUPER EASY little project! Don't let any of these materials intimidate you!!! I left my wood raw because I love the look but if you want something painted on yours, now is the time to do that. I just free handed a little bunny nose and whiskers. I didn't mind any imperfections because it's supposed to be a little whimsical :-) Next I followed the directions on my clock kit. It's pretty simple, just make sure you pay attention to the order you are supposed to put each hand on. After you have your clock mechanism all set it's time to glue on the bunny ears. So fun!! I used a little paper ice cream bowl to get the rounded edge I needed on my balsa strip. Then used regular old scissors to cut along my rounded pencil line. Balsa is super easy to work with and cut. I used 1/8 inch thick but if I had it to do again I would probably buy 1/4 inch thick. Now, you can make your ears in whatever shape you choose. I liked the look of these rounded but you could easily print out a template to trace to get the shape you want. I used a little wood glue on each ear and stuck them to the back of the wood clock round.
