DIY Record Clock

You Will Need

Clock Mechanism
Stickers (Use exclamation marks, line for the 12, 3, 6, 9 and dots for all in between)
Picture Hanger
Super Glue
Grey Lead

1. Take your record and with a grey lead pencil make small marks on the outer rim at 12, 3, 6 and 9. Now using a protractor mark in the rest of the numbers.
2. Place your stickers around your clock on your grey led marks. 

3. Next you must attach your mechanism to the back of the record with the hands sticking through the hole in the center.

4. Next find dead center on the back of your clock by measuring across the width and finding the middle point high up on the back of the clock mechanism, NOT ON THE RECORD!,  now glue your hanger in this spot. 
5. Last but not least insert your batteries and mount your clock on the wall or on a fancy stand as shown above.
