I took the wire spool apart and made this clock using a recycled clock mechanism. I painted the hands black, the second hand was already orange and to make it pop a bit, I painted a large washer red and set it in the center.
It measures about 8 across.

Old tin wire spools have some of the best graphics and Wiry Joe is no exception!

Your projects are always so fun, and always bring a smile to my face. I love this......the colours on the face of the clock are great, and the addition of the painted washer and orange hand set it off beautifully.
Hope you are having tons of fun with your new venture!!
