Pizza Pan Clock

I'm proud to say this project was made entirely from things I already had.  I'm really trying to be more resourceful these days :)

So I started with this.  An old rusty pizza pan (we got a new pretty one for a wedding present). 

Primed and painted

Found this old $5 clock I've had laying around

Took that sucker apart

This is how I found the center point. Probably not the best method.

And here's where it got really "resourceful".  I used the ancient technique of "an old pill bottle top hot glued with a wire circle hot glued on top of that and then I had to balance out the bottom so I folded up some cardboard and hot glued that too" I'm sure you're familiar with this technique.

As they always say, the pictures do not do it justice.

It probably won't keep the best time, because my number 8 dot is wayyy off..
I really really love it though :)
