I’ve had this idea in my head for a long time, and with Earth Day coming up it seemed like the perfect time to execute this upcycling project. I just adore my new DIY purse!
Step one. Take apart the alarm clock. Save the bells on top, the legs, and the arms. Save the rest for a different project on another day.
Step three. Drill holes to screw the clock pieces into the wood box.
Step four (optional). Seal the project with the glaze spray if you want a high gloss finish.
I’m going to finish off the inside with fabric and Mod Podge, as soon as I find the perfect retro fabric! If you don’t want to use it as a purse it would make adorable craft room storage. You could also turn it into a super cute jewelry box. And the rest of the clock? My daughter and I have a fun idea for what to do with the frame. Stay tuned!
