Revamp an old clock in under an hour!

Step 1: Materials and Tools

All you need is:


a bike wheel
After calling around, I found most cycleries have old parts that are up for grabs. A place on Polk St. had great spare wheels.

a clock or clock mechanism
I used an old Ikea clock of mine- http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70098989/

a glue gun

an exacto knife

Optional add ons:

tin foil and cardboard: 
I used these to extend the arms on my clock and make them longer to accomodate my new face.

I ended up hanging my clock from a curtain rod in my room.
