The Nursery: DIY Marquee Star Clock

While shopping for nursery decor, one item that I couldn't seem to find was a clock - so I decided to make my own.  So, for the last couple of months, my mom & I were always on the lookout for anything that we could turn into a clock...

One day @ Michael's I spotted this cute light up marquee star that was on sale & my mom suggested we use it for the clock...and bonus - it would double as a nightlight!  We picked up a clock kit & some number stickers while we there too:

After removing the back, we had to remove the battery box (it was glued down) & relocate it so it didn't get in the way of the clock component:

Next, my dad drilled a hole into the middle:

Once the hole was drilled, we attached the clock kit to the star:

I added some number stickers as well:

Afterwards, I decided I didn't like the gold clock hands, so I wrapped the star in tinfoil & spray painted the hands black (spraying very light coats as to not gunk them up):

Still debating if I want to add the rest of the numbers or not - for now we'll go with this:

Now we have a clock...

& a nightlight!

Nursery reveal coming soon - here's a peek @ the crib...
