Homemade Gifts Re-purposed From A Garage Sale Item!

It starts out with an old record that I had or you can buy one at a garage sale.

            I LOVED this record growing up!

    Re-purpose this record album into something new!

 Record albums are always in garage sales for a $1 or less.  I love it when I am able to re-purpose or recycle things. I bought 4 record albums at a garage sale.  I decided to paint the album in Satin Nickel spray paint. I spray painted the records.  They came out really nice.

Clock mechanism that I will use to make the clock (bought at Michael's)

                      Top corner of the package tells the size for projects

                                                                                                                                                                  I then hit Michael's Craft Store to find the clock's hands and workings.  I debated (with myself) if the clock needed numbers but decided against it.   The Clock mechanisms came in a couple of different sizes and I figured out that I needed a SMALL size (1/4 inch).

My husband thought that the hole in the middle of the album needed to be a tad bigger so he used a drill and drill bit to make it bigger.

        A Sharpe will transform these clock hands after I coat them in black.

            All pieces ready to be put together

Wrapping these were a little bit of a challenge.  Then my husband realized that the pizza boxes from the local pizza shop would work perfectly!  So I bought 4 empty, clean pizza boxes to put clocks in.

They look great! 

Garage Sale Groove!!
