Upcycled Clocks Made From Just About Anything

Over the years I’ve made a variety of clocks from upcycled items. Many were made with reclaimed bike parts. Others were created with everyday items.

The black clock was made from a piece of scrap metal. After I removed the rust from the metal, I used a primer and paint spray paint on both sides. Then I glued filigree jewelry findings on the clock face and attached the clock mechanism & the hands.

The brass clock was fun and easy to assemble. I received two brass disks from a close friend. They were originally from candle holders. They needed polishing but once that was done, I was impressed with the pretty etching on both brass pieces. I used one of the disks to be the clock. After I attached the clock mechanism and added the clock hands, this clock turned out great!

I encourage you to use your imagination and hunt for unique items to make a clock for yourself. You’ll be surprise with what you are able to create.
