I just love old books. Especially children’s books. The colors & illustrations are always so fun. When ever I’m out thrifting my next new find, I always see so many of these great books. Many are not in such great shape, but they still have a “life” in them yet!
You’ll need…..old book of your choice, drill, and a clock mechanism . You can either by a new clock mechanism at a craft store, or even better find an old clock at the resale shop & use that one instead (its cheaper too!).
Drill a hole in the middle of the book .You’ll need a drill bit that matches the width of the clock mechanism. Its best to place a piece of wood under the book so that you can drill completely through it. Hold the book down & in place so that it doesn’t slip away while you drill. This will insure a clean drilled hole.
With so many books to chose from its easy to find one to match your décor. How about a cook book clock for the kitchen? Or maybe sweet vintage baby book for the nursery? The possibilities are endless!
