Mod Podge Bathroom Decor

I did a few more decorations for my kids' bathroom. You've already seen the shower curtain and stepstool, so let's take a closer look at what else is new. Thank goodness for Mod Podge! Kleenex and toothbrush holders. Stitch a little fabric on some towels. And the clock. It's kind of my favorite part of the room so far, but that could be because my favorite color is yellow, and the yellow in this makes me happy. Mod podge to the rescue again. I think the towel and kleenex/toothbrush holders are pretty self-explanatory, but I'll explain how I did the clock just in case you want to do one as well.

I started out with a very basic clock ($2.97 at Wal-Mart). I took the clock apart and started with the outer rim. Cut a piece of fabric big enough that it can wrap up around it. Go ahead and mod podge it down. Cut a hole in the center. Then mod podge the edges under. Apply a layer of mod podge over the entire thing and set aside to dry.

Moving on to the inside. Ignore the blue fabric for now and pretend the boring clock face is still showing. Trust me, I forgot this step and had to go back and it doesn't look as pretty. Ok, still working with the yellow fabric, mod podge the inner trim or whatever it's called. Now we can move on to the blue fabric (face) part. Cut a circle of fabric slightly bigger than your face. Cut a tiny slit in the center of the circle to slide the watch hands through. Mod podge that down, then apply a layer of mod podge on top. Allow it to dry, then take an X-acto knife and trim any excess fabric. Then you call a friend that owns a Silhouette (if you aren't lucky enough to own one yourself) and have her cut out some numbers for your clock. I used the font CK Typist. Once I had those, I placed my clock on top of a bigger clock I had so I could use the angles to place the numbers. Mod podge those on, then apply one last topcoat of mod podge and let everything dry. Put that clock back together and voila!
