Vinyl Clock

I love this clock, think I'll be making more in the future if I can find homes for them that is lol. This was a birthday present for a friend and I thought her place needed something new and a little quirky just like her so I made her a vinyl record clock to sit/hang from the mantlepiece.
Bonus points to anyone who can guess the band and the single that this record is for!

Gotta love what a couple of minutes in an oven does to a vinyl, maybe a bowl will be my next vinyl experiment or perhaps a bag...

I'm linking this up to the lovely parties listed on the right hand column.

This is also my entry for this weeks Crafty Creations challenge 'Let's Heat It Up!', I did have to heat the vinyl record to make it maelable enought to shape so I think that covers heat it up lol!

Vinyl clock? That's genius. I'm a follower now.

Btw, do you want to gain more blog followers? Then come on and join my "Swap Followings" Linky Party. This is an excellent opportunity for every blogger to meet other bloggers, follow them, and be followed in return. How does this work? Just simply "swap your following" which goes like this, "I follow your blog so please follow mine." All you have to do is create a post about the party, include the party button, follow 2 or more bloggers then leave them comments so they can follow you back.

The party has just begun so hop over to http://www.homemakeronadime.com/2011/01/swap-followings-linky-party-013111.html

Bring your best virtual smile, be prepared to meet great bloggers, and see you there! :)

How cute! I love stuff repurposed out of records! I have a record bowl, and a record clock would go perfect with it!

I love it! When I read the title I figured it was vinyl as in the vinyl words that are all over the place these days! I love this!!

I love repurposing and this is wonderful. I've seen clocks made from records before, but never like this, too cool. Great job.
