The other day called me at the door of a neighbor. Look, standing with a large package. I was delighted, as they say, roll sponge-gostinchik probably brought. He went into the room and complains skid new furniture and accidentally brushed the wall clock. Watch pieces, but that is not entirely crumbled collected and brought to me. He says you can come in handy something nakolduesh, so very sorry to throw in the trash.
She looked me in the bag, looked at the shards and thought-will at my watch a second life! The main mechanism remains in working condition and even with a new battery!
First, I make out, unwound all the cogs:
Basis for hours, which is attached and the dial mechanism is completely broken, so I looked carefully at home a piece of hardboard:
Draw any shape, oval, square, rhombus and circle and cut it:
Immediately schedule and cut out a hole for attaching the dial mechanism and arrows:
The edges should be clean sandpaper.
Do not forget to attach the back of the ring or mount-hanger:
Now we need to identify the location of the dial on hardboard and a bouquet of flowers. Encircles all the pencil.
Clearance coat with glue and sprinkle buckwheat, I like it the most. See how you can make a bowl of ordinary plastic bottle and decorate it with all the same buckwheat:
I have stepped back from the edge of hardboard per centimeter, then to make the rim of the coffee beans. Among them is a beautiful coffee tree. Give the glue to dry.
And paint silverfish:
Flowers, too, should be updated, giving a second life to not only watch, but also the colors:
The bunches were two holes for the screws, attach them with the help of flowers to hardboard:
The edges of the paste with coffee beans:
Lesson is, I will tell you- tedious, it requires patience, but what to do, should be initiated to bring to a victorious end. When the basis for the hours is completely ready, you can through the hole and fasten the dial mechanism to insert arrows and start a second life hours.
So, neighbor let rest, and I have in the country is quite amiss.
Well, what do you think I calmed down on this? Stay beautiful tip of those former hours. I heated a knife on the fire, cut off the excess plastic and hoisted real crown on a new watch:
Now it is possible to pack and carry to destination. That’s my story. Thus began a new, second life hours that almost went in the trash.
