How To Make An Upcycled Record Wall Clock

The Green Workbench demonstrates how to make an upcycled record wall clock.  A quick and easy upcycling project that looks great!

If you wanted to make it even more personalised, you could heat the record either in the oven or with hot water and cut out a shape in the record.

Heating the record before you drill might actually make it easier to drill through, make sure that you use a light pressure when drilling as you don’t want to risk shattering the record.


The materials and equipment that you’ll need to make your upcycled record wall clock are shown below.

  • Vinyl record
  • Clock movement mechanism
  • Drill
  • Small spanner
Did You Know?

In the UK vinyl records are not accepted in the household recycling scheme, or at recycling centres. However, if they’re still in good condition, a charity shop might take them or you might be able to sell them.

If you can’t sell them then have a go at upcycling them!
