Ok this is a fun idea i had to take my favorite cd and turn it into a clock. Its very simple, takes very little time, and everyone seems to want one.

Step 1: Things You Need

Cheap walmart clock, scissors, washable marker, some cds, and super glue.

Step 2: Draw Lines

Exactly what the title says, just take the marker and draw lines on the back of the cds so they turn out looking pizzas.

Step 3: Cut

Now using the sissors, CAREFULLY cut along your lines. I say carefully because I broke several cds in this procceedure. After cutting take a few pieces of each cd and try to fit them into a new cd as seen in the picture.


Step 4: The Clock

Now that the cd is ready its time to prep the clock. If its a cheap walmart clock or any other cheap clock it just pops apart. If this isnt the case for your clock grab a hammer and go at it! all you need is the gear holder aka thing that makes clock tick.

Step 5: Glue

Now just super glue piece by piece untill clock is complete. Simple!

Step 6: Finished

Now that the clock is finished hang and admire. you can paint the hands if desired. Another way  I did this clock was just take one cd and super glue it on as seen in picture.
Followed your instructions... extremely pleased with the final product!
Looks great<br>
I think it looks better if you use one CD that has a cool design.<br />
yes I agree thats why with mine I used the bob marley cd because he is my favorite artist, the reason I did the 3 cds is because a friend of mine wanted one but didnt want just one cd thus the cd collage
I agree too.
Ah, makes sense :)<br />
Unless one of the two cds could be rigged to the second hand column and slip in behind and out from behind the other cd....<br /><br />Unfortunately the second hand is usually is the inner column. :(
Still, good idea, even if it would change more slowly on another hand.&nbsp; It still might be better than a static art form, different each time you check the time!
I'll do it
