Get a 'Handle' On the Time

Get a 'Handle' On the Time

This unique clock was thought up by the creative minds at Bachman's, a flower and home decoration store, for their creative Fall Ideas House. It's made out of various handles that compose the numbers. The large pieces of plywood string together the clock and add a rustic barn feel to the piece.

A refreshing take from the digital age of beeps, flashing lights and alarms, you almost don't notice this clock. Unique display clocks are starting to make a comeback, and this is one great example of a creative way to reuse old materials. Made out of rustic plywood pieces, handles, and old metal hoop, nails, and a large clock piece, this isn't too tricky to make yourself.

So if you have any rusting or unused parts just sitting around the house, see what you can envision to re-create something as simple as this. Typical clock pieces run between $8 - $30 dependent on size, but it is possible to dig these out of garage sales as well if you have the mechanic-inclined mind to fix them.
