I wanted to recycle some bottle tops I had. I made holes in them with a metal skewer and slotted in wooden sticks which I snipped to size using a wire cutter. I made a hole in the lid of a jar of face cream and fitted battery-operated clock-hand pieces through it. Then, using some strong glue, I stuck the skewers around the plastic lid to create this kitchen clock. I think it looks great and only cost pennies to make.
