Repurposed Inspiration: Super Easy Beach Clock

It’s garage sale season again and I am always looking for bargains AND inspiration. I was inspired to make a super easy clock makeover.

I got this nice composite wood clock for a song: 50 cents!  I decided to make a beachy themed clock with some clip art paper that already had pretty starfish placed in just the  right places  to mimic a clock.

The clock movement worked, but since I plan to sell it I tossed the movement and put in one that was brand new.

Step One: Cover the clock face with beach themed colors (scrapbook paper or paint.)

Step Two: Cut out magazine font alphabet letters to spell “beach time” and attach them with glue stick.

Step Three:  Insert clock movement and attach hands.

Step Four:  Use hot glue to attach actual tiny starfish to mark 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock.
