Here is it my friends, the five minute DIY clock using a paper plate! It really can't get much simpler than this, and you could change the plate as often as you like for a little fresh hit of color or design! I also think that a paper plate clock would make a great gift, or fill a whole wall with them! Clock mechanisms are quite inexpensive, you can get a cheap one for around $2 (8 shekels), so this could be a really fun project that you could take in so many directions! Have fun with it!
- a paper plate, dinner sized
- a clock movement kit
Find the exact center of the plate, measure if necessary. Make a hole in the center with a metal skewer or a nail. Insert the shaft of the clock mechanism through the hole and attach the hands. You may need to secure the clock mechanism to the back of the plate with hot glue or double stick tape.
And in case you hadn't noticed, a clock project is very timely today, as tonight we enter the final week before Rosh HaShanah! And this my friends is a very important week, because in this week we have the opportunity to make amends for things that didn't go quite as we would have wished during the whole year. Don't go crazy, just try to do your best in all the areas where you may have slipped a bit. Speaking of time, I gotta run, and really don't have the brain power at the moment to explain in greater extent what I just said above, so if any of you want further clarification, do drop me a line!
