Spooky Halloween Grandfather Clock

So I was inspired by a Pinterest post (shocking) to try to create my own spooky grandfather clock for Halloween. Below is what happened …

Old, empty cardboard boxes, glued together. Dollar Tree headstone, pieces from a Wal-Mart headstone set, and graveyard skull stakes from Spirit of Halloween.

Finally, clock added.

DIY Spooky Clock

I didn’t spray paint the rim of the clock, I may do that tomorrow, I haven’t really decided though I know it would look better if I did, so I don’t know, we’ll see.

It’s not nearly as detailed or well done as the one I found on Pinterest, but it will work for our Halloween Party! Here is the link for the inspiration for my grandfather clock: http://www.halloweenforum.com/halloween-props/120838-grandfather-clock-cardboard-dollar-store-items.html

Happy Haunting!
