Over a fireplace, above the couch or even above a lamp stand can all make a statement.

Place the clockwork kit through the circle in the middle of the record fasten into place. Next Place the self-adhesive numbers in the correct order around the face of the record. The final step is to put it in a frame and hang it in your desired location. Your clock will offer a great addition to the room. It’s best to use a black finish frame to not take away from the color of the record.
