CD Clock



Stuck with old CDs? Make a CD Clock from Lisa Fulmer! This is a fun recycled craft idea that everyone will love (and want in their home!)

CD Clock


  • Old CD
  • Clock kit
  • Copper Washer
  • Paintbrush
  • Paint in various colors


  1. I didn't bother trying to take off the cd label on the front of the cd, i just turned it over and painted the unlabeled back side for the front of my clock.
  2. The clock parts come in a handy kit from Walnut Hollow and you can make the clock face from anything you want. Since the hole in a cd is a little too big for the nut and bolt that comes in the clock kit, i just added a copper washer in between to fill the gap so nothing slides around.
  3. I brushed a streaky background wash with a caramel color, painted the center with red and blue, then i just squeezed little drops of ink directly from the bottle on top in yellow, red and blue, letting each color dry before adding the next.
  4. I made a quick stamp from a metal washer glued to a wooden spool and stamped circles at 12, 3, 6, and 9 to make a clock face.
  5. I liked all the circles and dots so much like this, I opted not to add any numbers.

Clock kits have a hanger on the back for hanging the clocks.

How clever. I have wanted a clock using blue for a bathroom. My idea is using blue in a wavery pattern on the silver cd with tiny shells for the hour designations. Thanks for your idea.
