Let the Hours Dangle

Thanks for visiting me today! This week is all about transforming our forlorn time pieces. You know you have them. They're there lurking in the deepest part of your dresser. Take them out. Maybe all they need is a battery change. Then you can wear them again. That's blah to TADA!

For my personal stash, they need new leather straps, apart from fresh batteries. These watches aren't at all expensive so I can be a little more experimental. Like this one for instance:

The straps of this watch were a Gucci wanna-be: green, red and green stripes. Well, maybe a change of image is in order.

Behind its tough exterior is a frilly princess. Some crystal-like beads in jewel tones, perhaps? 

 Then add a long silver chain.

You can wear it around your neck and it can tell time! Isn't that TADA!?


  1. Ohh, I'm loving this one. Now I know what I'm gonna do with my dads old watch!

    1. Hi Linda! Thank you for visiting my blog :) I'm certain that you will create something pretty from a sentimental piece!
