You can make this cool retro clock from a vinyl record and an old clock. If you don’t have the components at home, you can find a great selection of records and clocks at your favorite Goodwill of Orange County store.
It’s fun to make custom accessories from common Goodwill finds. Why not make a few extra to give as gifts? Everyone who saw these Retro DIY Clocks just loved them!
- Vinyl record
- A battery operated clock. Flip it over and make sure it has a mechanism with a battery slot that is held in by screws. The clock should have hands for hour, minute, and seconds.
- A new battery to fit in the clock’s mechanism
- A numbering system – I used stencils and a paint pen, but you could also use scrapbook paper, stickers, or paint.
Step 4: Take apart the clock so that you can get to the clock mechanism. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws from the back of the clock. You should be left with three hands (second, minute, hour) and the back plate.
Feel good about shopping and supporting Goodwill! Your purchases and donations help support Goodwill’s programs and services which provide job and employment training to people with disabilities or barriers in Orange County.
