New Years Clock Dessert/Cake Stand

My clock in my office quick working and I was ready to throw it away when I started to think of what I could use it for. Then the idea hit. People always decorate with clock for New Years. I decided I would make a dessert/cake stand. 

I started out with my broken clock and a candlestick that I found on clearance at Michael's Crafts after Halloween.

I took the clock apart and really washed and scrubbed the glass and rim.

I then put a vinyl Happy New Year in the center. You could always use a stencil to do this too.

 I then glued the hands back onto the clock. I set it just a couple of minutes before midnight!

 I took a noise maker and glued it onto the face of the clock. I also took some silver tinsel that I got on clearance after Christmas and curled it with scissors and sprinkled it around.

I took and sprinkled silver glitter all over the face. You could add whatever you wanted on it.

I then put the washed and sanitized glass and  rim back on the clock.

I used a glue gun to attach the candlestick to the bottom of the clock.

 The final step was to add some goodies to my dessert/cake stand.

I was very excited how my New Years Server turned out!

This is where I purchase my vinyl
