A 50th Anniversary CandyLand Tin... Turned Tin Clock

OK.. I've seen just about everything turned into a clock.. so when I saw this tin, I knew immediately what it would be.....


I will be making a few more of this babies.. I have a ton of tins that will make interesting time pieces.


;) Thanks again Janis!


PS - Here's a tip... don't want to buy clock parts.. then get an inexpensive clock from a discount store for a a $1 or two.. carefully take apart & reuse!

What a great clock. The colors and ribbon are perfect together. You’ve become quite the talented clock designer…beautiful job. My peaceful daughter became a wild woman whenever she played Candy Land. She’s 19 years old now and has no recollection of her traumatic Candy Land years. I guess I’ll never know why the game drove her crazy…weird.

Happy day my friend.
