Happy Wednesday! If you missed my post yesterday on the New Year, New Room Refresh, I share the number one home decor tip that I get asked the most. Want to know what it is? click on over and check it out...and I share some sneak peek photos of my dining room. You do not want to miss it. 

Okay guys!!!!!Eeek, I am so excited about this months Create and Share challenge hosted by Casa Watkins and sponsored by Graphic Stock. This month using images from Graphic Stock, I decided to create a BUTTERFLY ENTOMOLOGY CLOCK. This was one of the most easiest projects ever and I LOVE the whole entomology decor trend....remember back in October when I shared a roundup of Entomology ideas that you can add to your Fall decor? Now, I have another one to add to my list. My daughters still cannot believe that I created this myself...that is how good this project came out and you know what they say about kids and their opinions....They ALWAYS state the truth.

Want to know how I created this beautiful butterfly entomology clock? Well, I used butterfly images from Graphic Stocks. They had a handful of butterflies to choose from...everything from cartoon looking butterflies to real butterflies.

Just for you, I created a 8"x8" and 12"x12" printables that you can use to create a Butterfly Entomology Clock. The clock insert I created for my clock measures 8"x8" with the actual clock base purchased from Lowes. I have had my clock for a year, but it went unused...It was more of an impulse buy at the time that I always intended on returning but never got to. LOL!

How to disassemble a clock to add a homemade printable using graphic stock images

In order to add the printable to use in a store bought clock you will need to:

1. Disassemble the base of your clock and pop out the glass.
2. Unscrew the hands of the clock.
3. Cut and place your printable inside the inside of the clock, holding the printable turn the clock on the backside and with a pen make a hole so that screws that hold the hands can fit through.
4. With the printable in place (you can adhere in place) put the clock back together.
