Kitschy Strawberry Clock Makeover

I found this kitschy strawberry clock at the discount store for only $6 and I instantly grabbed it. Trying to be more mindful of my spending I put it back and really looked at it. Did I love it? No. Could I love it if I changed it? Yes. Will I take the time to actually do the project instead of throwing it in the craft stash? Heck yes! So I snapped her up and turned her from a country kitchen type of thing to a fun, mod and kitschy piece that works really well in my colorful craft room and office space!
These steps should work with any plastic clock to update be it a strawberry or an every day circle shape!
Here is the before. It's cute but doesn't blow my mind...
Remove the glass and hands and set aside. Tape off the center bit where the hands attach.
Spray the clock, embellish areas with other colors of paint, here yellow for the seeds and green for the stem, and allow to dry.
Return the hands to their place, the glass to the front and you're set!
All finished up I think this clock is perfectly me! It adds another pop of pink to my room and is working really well with all of the wall decor I'm putting together. It's fun, it's unique and it only cost me $6 and a little bit of crafty elbow grease :)
