Repurposed Broken Clock Makeover #3

Usually I have to scrounge for items to repurpose at garage sales or thrift stores.   I got the supplies for three new repurposing ideas from an accident in my studio!

I had purchased this clock at a garage sale a few years ago because the clock was so cute and it had personality I thought my studio needed.  It fell from it’s home on the top shelf and had a 6′ fall then the clock hands flew off!

When I was trying to take the clock apart I was afraid to use too much force to pop the clear plastic dome.  However after I decided to make a mandala clock I gave up trying to preserve the dome.  I took an awl to the edge and to my amazement the clear dome popped off easily being pried by the awl.

It was so fun to make this 10 x 10 gallery wrapped canvas.  I used the dome to make a focal for a Wizard of Oz themed mixed media.  The clip art ruby slippers fit under the dome and I attached little paper flowers to decorate the edge.

So this was the final project made with my broken clock!
