Here is how the story goes! I already share with you in a previous post this diy, only that for that project I forgot to take the step by step pictures. So here is a New Book Clock that I made. Who knows, maybe this will be a gift. You now have the step by step pictures.
I left and went by Hobby Lobby and the Thrift Store and came home and made this.
I bought the cardboard box that looks like a book at Hobby Lobby for the middle with the clock works and went to the Thrift Store and bought 2 thick books to use.
I painted the books and made a hole in the middle box for the clock. Notice the colors? I decided that I will keep it in the end. It’s sitting on my desk and I needed it to match.
I found the clock works at Hobby Lobby, but I did buy the extra black hands instead of the gold ones that came with it. I cut out a square in the first layer of the inside for the stem to go through. I used Gorilla Glue to hold it.
I bought the clock with the long stem because it has quite a ways to go through.
I used Gorilla Glue to glue the books together.
Add the hands to the clock and vinyl for the letters and numbers. When you’re all done, it’s not so bad after all, right?!!
