Materials: RUSCH wall clock, old vinyl record, glue gun, marker pen.

Description: This is maybe the simplest hack yet,

I bought RUSCH wall clock ($1.99) a while ago and planned to hack it later. Then later I bought some old vinyl record from a flea market for just ($1.00) a piece.

First I started by removing the needles from the clock mechanism.

After that, I stuck the clock mechanism behind the record’s aperture using hot glue.

The needles, I used a marker pen to colour it white so that they contrast with the vinyl record’s colour.

Then, I replaced the needles and just like that, it’s finished. Like I said before, it is the simplest hack ever.

    I have a question. I just made this. But how do you hang it? Is there something you did or added to it afterwards?

    My son makes these clocks and then frames the album cover in a simple black frame (if it is a popular artist I.e. Rolling stones, etc).

    Congrats on your idea! It’s very practical and looks great. Wonderful way to keep old records at home and have a vintage look.
