Do you like drinking coffee alone or with friends? Read the English tradition of five o`clock tea time? Then such homemade clocks from cups perfectly fit into the interior of the kitchen or living room and will just reflect your love for tea drinking. In addition, watches from cups can become a wonderful gift to friends or relatives. To make funny watches from cups, you will need:
- a piece of plywood;
- 12 tea or coffee cups and saucers;
- clockwork with arrows;
- optional paint, sequins, beads (or other materials for the decor of the watch case);
- Adhesive suitable for glass and porcelain.
From the plywood, cut the circle - the future dialhours, after making sure that all 12 cups and saucers will fit in their places. In the center of the circle, make a suitable hole, attach the clock mechanism on the back side, and the arrows on the front side. You can try, instead of the arrows, attach light tea spoons or cake forks. Place the saucers in the strictly designated areas (first for 12 hours, 3 hours, 6 hours, 9 hours, and then for two between them). Using glue for glass and porcelain, glue cups to saucers, and then saucers - to plywood. If desired, decorate the clock, insert the batteries and enjoy your creation for a cup of fragrant tea!
