I dismantled the needles from the front and spray painted them with oil rubbed bronze because silver needles would really not stand out in front of the red background.
I cut the scrap book paper to size of the clock, traced the circle for the clock movement in the middle of the clock and cut it out a little smaller. Little slits around the clock movement helped fit the scrap book paper perfectly onto the clock back. The little grey circle painted on the clock helps forgive any errors in the cuts.
Once I had the paper cut to size and fit, I coated the back of the clock with mod podge and carefully laid the paper, smoothing out any bubbles with a credit card edge. Once everything was dry, I assembled the needles back on.
