Clock to Cloche and more of my winnings from Chester and Donkey

I'm joining Kimba's DIY day at A Soft Place To Land. Go check out some great ideas!

Today, I am sharing more of my winnings from Jennifer at Chester and Donkey.

I’ve told you about more of my winnings here.


I found the clock (and tray) at my local thrift store, His House and squealed when I saw it because I remember Jennifer's post about turning one into a cloche. I knew when I received her package, just what to do w/ the clock.


The tray you also saw here.

I took the clock part out and spray painted the bottom with Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint. I found the finial at a hardware store and it matched the paint perfectly so I glued it to the top. I placed the pumpkin from my winnings inside and tied a bow at the top. The ribbon came from the Dollar Tree and is sheer with pumpkins on it.
