Inexpensive Recycled Clock

With New Years just about here and most of us thinking about time, I thought that this might be a good time to highlight this project...

I needed an interesting clock for the music room so I went to Goodwill and bought the cheapest and ugliest looking clock that they had that still ran.  I removed the hands and clock mechanism and recycled the rest.  I then made a design and cut it out of 1/4 inch plywood and painted the clock with black spray paint and the hands with grey.  I attached the clock mechanism and reattached the hands.  A series of white sticky backed cut outs were used to denote the hours and now the recycled clock once again accurately tells the time!
