Old clock faces really make my heart sing. I always keep an eye out for them while out treasure hunting but never seem to have any luck. So for April’s Pinterest Challenge hosted by the lovely Erelene from over at My Pinterventures I’ve decided to try making some of my own. Sharing some DIY Vintage Farmhouse Clock Faces using Old CDs.

DIY Vintage Farmhouse Clock Faces using Old CD’s

Being a music lover, I have thousands of CDs that I no longer use thanks to Spotify. So I couldn’t think of a better way than to repurpose them with this project.

Supplies Needed:

 

 

Step 1 – Print out the clock faces onto your cardstock. Cut out carefully around the edges.

Step 2 – Paint a ring of black paint around the edges of your CDS. Let dry.

Step 3 – Paint a layer of top coat over the entire CD and the back of the clock face. Align the clock face with the centre of the CD and rub over to remove any air bubbles.

  1. Sam, I love this project! But what I love best is how you display them! Simply beautiful! Great upcycle too! Pinning!

  2. I really love this idea. If you can find an old vintage round frame these would look amazing or an old round mirror…oh the ideas! You can find CDs for nothing at second hand stores. Can’t wait to try this. Pinned!

  3. This is a cool idea. I’m wondering though, how do you get the distressed look on the the cardstock clock faces? I really want to try this.

  4. That makes for such an amazing display Sam. I must admit it makes me a little sad to know that our grand kids probably won;t have any idea what a CD is, maybe they’ll come back like vinyl has
