day 132: halloween punked clock :)

much more halloweeny :)
day 132 and i saw this clock on pinterest and knew i had to punk out one of my own clocks!  the clock is part of sadie's halloween decor from 2009 on her blog sadie olive.  it's such a great idea and something i never would have dreamed of decorating at any festive season let alone halloween!~

i decided to use dark brown bats on mine as it would fit into the colour scheme in our bedroom.  i printed out the silhouette bats from no biggie, cut them out and used them as templates for the brown felt.  these templates are the same ones i used for the pillows on day 117.

outcome: this is such a cool idea to update your clock with embellishments for the season :) it totally makes me smile every time i walk past it ... again one of those ideas that is so simple but one i never would have thought to do.  the other nice thing about this creation was it didn't take a lot of time to cut the bats out and they looked so good on their own i didn't want to add anything else.

my thanks to sadie at sadie olive for this wonderful inspiraton, her blog is full of amazing home decor ideas and photos (incredibly inspiring) and is well worth a visit.  and also thanks to no biggie AGAIN for those handy dandy FREE halloween silhouettes :)

I think the clock and "take Flight" message are pretty cool on their own but the bats are definitely an awesome Halloween addition!

I'd never think to dress up a clock, but I can see how you could do all sorts of fun things... will we see Santa flying in his sleigh next month? (Makes me think of the Kiwi Night Before Christmas, one of my favorite books!).
