This project took me about 30 minutes to make and cost less then $5.
I'll admit, it is hard to read the time, but it;s a great conversation starter, and looks neat and different at the same time.
I hope you enjoy (sorry for the poor photos), please leave suggestions and comments below.
PLEASE NOTE: I got this idea from Etsy.com. I am not taking credit for coming up with this idea. Just showing you how to make one yourself.
Etsy Jar Clock
Step 1: Materials and Tools
Materials and tools:
Quartz clock mechanism
I used a jar I found around the house. The clock mechanism came from a clock I found at a dollar store. The number stickers I found in a stationary shop.
Step 2: Fitting the clock to the jar
I ended up just wedging the clock into the jar, and did not need to use any adhesives.
You can attach the base to the lid, but remember, you will not be able to turn the lid (think of a square peg in a round hole)
I also thought of using the dremmel to take the threads off the lid, and just snap the lid on (no turning needed)
IMPORTANT: you want to find a jar that has a circumference close to that of the mouth. If not you will have a hard time getting the clock hands in (and close to the wall)
