Paper Plate Clock!

It's half term here this week, but Keiran has had a bit of a cold so we've been taking it easy. We have done a little crafting together though, and Keiran even made a clock!

Would you believe that this is actually a working clock made using a paper plate, three marbles, a frying pan and some paint?! Quite simply, you put a paper plate in a frying pan, dip your marbles in different coloured paints and drop them onto your plate, then roll them around to make your pattern. We then cut out some Die-Namics numbers in matching colours and I then added the clock movement which I picked up on Ebay for about £1. 
It was meant to adorn his bedroom wall, but it ticks too loudly, so it's in the hallway now!

Keiran wants to enter this into a challenge, so the only relevant one I could find this week was The Crafty Blogger's Network - Anything Goes

Ok...back shortly with a card from me! :)
