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!!
