Antique Door Handle Clock


Happy Monday Everyone! I have been quite the busy lady in my craft room recently! I’m creating some great new things for the upcoming craft show next month.  It’s hard to tell what will sell well and what will not, so I am making a WIDE variety of things. This little beauty is one I am most proud of.

It is a fully functional pendulum clock made from an old door handle and barn wood my in-laws graciously allowed me take from the farm.  I am always coming across antique door handles and plates at flea markets and thought they might make for a unique wall hanging.  While I was at it, I thought to myself  “I bet I could make that into a clock somehow.”  Sure enough… a few broken drill bits later, (sorry again honey) it all came together! I tied it all together by swapping out the round pendulum for a skeleton key. So far I have made three, but this one in particular is my favorite.  I was planning on selling it, but I’m not so sure now…, it’s looking pretty cozy up there on my wall. :) I hope you like it! And as always, thanks for stopping by!

Pin It!
