Spent about 3.50 all together...the clock was 3 bucks and the old disney snack plate was 50 cents...used some hot glue and construction glue...a couple of fresh coats of acrylic paints...and some craft foam bits for the rocket tail...and a new fun Moon clock...



Started to take apart the clock...drilled a hole in the plate to put the clock bits through...



Cut up the house part...glued the plate in place...



Started the base coats of color...on the night sky...and the moon face...



Ta-da...Moon clock...made out of an old clock and end of the road snack kid's plate...a new life fer both...



Covered up the glue globs with some hot pink eco felt...



This pic was just to show how the rocket was made...

I wouldn't have thought to do that, now I'm thinking of the possibilities.

I love it, from the expression on the moon's face to the sweet little rocket ship!

As soon as I saw the thumbnail, I fell in love with it.  I didn't know yet that it is a clock.  The round face looks so sweet and cute. Who wouldn't fell in love with him?  When I learned that it was made into a clock, I thought, wow, such creativity!  Smiley

That's really cute.  I love the rocket ship.

I'm not sure I shoudl admit to this, but I think I own one of those plates, and it's somewhere at my Mom's house.
