If you want to create an eye-catching fashion accessory for the holiday, why not have a go at making a fun, festive timepiece. All you need is an old watch; some felt or ribbon to cover the strap and a few additional items for decoration. In no time at all you'll have something to wear for that special party, where you're bound to stand out from the crowd and everyone is sure to want to ask you the time!

For an alternative to felt and ribbon, simply paint the watchstrap with leather shoe dye or watered down fabric paints.
Customize some cheap watches bought from a budget store; they'll make perfect gifts for all your family and friends. You could even create a gift box for each watch or to give guests a real surprise, make your own crackers and place a festive timepiece inside each one.
