    I have 3 clocks I made over 7 years ago out of 78 rpm records. I used gospel records. I've been offered $25.00 apiece for mine. and if I would make more. ( I didn't make them to sell) Since I have retired, I might just make a few and see how they sell.

      @Bill That's so awesome! I do a few craft fairs in the summer, so maybe I should start selling them. Thanks for the idea!

    I think this idea is great - thanks for sharing. I have seen CDs used as clocks, with pictures modged on to the 'wrong' side. I have used only records as 'decorations' on a garden wall, and they have not warped.

    vinyl record clock, crafts, repurposing upcycling, I spray painted the record then drilled a hole in the top to hang it Simply added gems using silicone
