Got Some Free Time?

See the clock face up there?
I know, nobody has free time this time of year! But if you do I found some fun things to do with your time! I also think some of these would make some great holiday presents. The website Flavorwire recently had a great post for the DIYers out there about 10 DIY Projects for Your Old Books. We all know I love these kind of articles and there were some new ideas in there.

One of them, making a clock (photo above), I think was a great idea! I think picking up a brightly colored favorite of your child and putting a clock face on it would make a really fun addition to your children's room. I also think, if you are up for it, it could make for a really artistic thing to do for a book that you love the cover of but not necessarily the book.

I am seriously thinking of making the picture frame as well, (photo below) because I think that is just a lovely idea.


So dish, do you like any of these ideas?

  5. These are such cute ideas. Not sure if I would ever be motivated enough to do it myself but I'm pretty lazy with crafty stuff lately.
