And then the other day, while cleaning in my 12 year old son's room, I found an old plastic clock, stuffed under his bed. I was loath to throw it away, so I took out the hands and clock motor thingy - (let's call it the clock mechanism).
I then threw away the carcass of the clock. Adios Amigos.
I took a wicker plate charger and
Hold on, I'm tired of saying clock mechanism. Let me go google what that thing is.
Oh, I see, it's called a clock MOVEMENT. I like clock mechanism better after all.
So, the clock mechanism goes at the back. Making a clock is so easy! Not only can you disassemble an old ugly clock and use the parts, you can buy a kit for a couple of bucks at any craft store.
(click image to buy one for $5.99!)
Also, you can use pretty much anything as your clock face. Record albums, wood, plates, serving platters...
I really liked my wicker plate charger idea because I didn't have to drill a hole! (I know, it probably saved me all of 45 seconds in my lifetime, but these things make me happy.)
I dressed up my plate charger clock with some glass beads that I bought ages ago at the dollar store.
I like it.
