Christmas Presents – DIY 3

Clock Book

This is a fun and easy project all you really need is the idea (and supplies, of course) 

A hard back book cover
A clock set (can buy these from good craft shops) or take apart an old one you have (which I did).
A drill or a screwdriver and care.

Ensure that your hard back book cover is of simple design with not too much text.
Use a compass to draw a light circle, you can mark the digits or leave them blank, make a small insertion into the centre of the circle and fit your clock set.

Tick, tick…..BOOOOOM, You don’t need to shake the room cause you just made a book clock.

These pictures are not mine. I will upload mine later, promise!

  1. Magnetic poems
  2. A Books Bracelet

In my next few Christmas posts I will show you how to make:

  2. Very clever and very creative. I have always thought that presents we make for one another contain more of our hearts. Thank you Michelle.
