brie box clocks

i’ve been saving brie boxes for a while for a new pARTy project: brie box clocks. i bought clock mechanisms online, and on saturday night we decorated and assembled.

jackie's six clock
i love jackie’s six clock. she used a patterned file folder and 2 green circle stickers to create the face, then she added the word six in metal letters.

jackie's brie clock
jackie left the face of her second clock as-is. the label itself is a great clock face, perfect for the kitchen!

jean's blue clock
this is jean’s fabulous blue clock. she painted the side of the box white, and flipped the hands to the white side. i had a little box of watch parts, and i just love how jean placed them on the face!

heather's red clock
heather played white quite a few color ideas before settling on this combination. she started with some printed tape that i bought from jesse breytenbach’s etsy shop, and the red face with brown highlights is perfect.

jean's brie clock
jean also made a brie clock, but added washers that she spray painted bright red.

i’m working on a few brie box clocks of my own, but they’re not quite ready to share — my job on saturday night was to make sure the wine was put to good use!

happy monday!

    if you only knew the brie adventures you inspired tonight. my stomach all sends thanks.

    love the clocks and the art/design teacher thanks you for the great idea. she was wondering if you were available to come teach a workshop here in june until she was saddened to hear where your corner of paradise is.

    They turned out great! Wish my weekend hadn’t been so darn full and we could’ve come. (yes, I’m just now catching up on 2 weeks of your posts – I don’t think I’ve ever gone that long without your daily inspiration – sniff)
