Project: House Clocks

This is what my friends found under the tree this year for Christmas. I usually make gifts around Christmas because A) they're meaningful B) they're frugal and C) they're fun! Since many of my friends recently got their own places or moved this past year I thought it fitting to give them something to commemorate their leap of independence and something functional and let's face it, I thought they'd be doggone cute!

I found paper mache houses from the local craft store, painted them with acrylics and installed a simple clock kit. You can make a clock out of just about anything really. My cousin Carrie over at made one out of an old record! Check back for more of my projects!
