Turn Your Walker’s Shortbread Tin Into a Cute Clock
Enjoyed all your Walker’s Shortbread, and looking for ways to reuse that decorative tin? We’ve got a perfectly timed DIY way to do just that! It’s a quick and easy craft and you only need the following supplies:
- Empty Walker’s Shortbread Decorative Tin
- Clock mechanism with hands (find at your local craft store or online)
- A drill or small hammer
- A small bit of tape
Choose Your Favorite Walkers Decorative Tin
Once you empty the tin of all the delicious Pure Butter Shortbread you can upcycle it into a fun clock.
Use a Holiday Tin you can bring out for next year, like our Snowman Tin, or any of our Scottish Design tins for an everyday clock with a Highlands flair.
How To Make Your Clock
Decide where you want the clock hands to go on your Walker’s Decorative Tin Lid, mark the inside with a bit of tape and carefully drill or hammer a hole big enough to fit the clock mechanism.
Assembly with the kit instructions is easy! Simply insert the clock mechanism through and attach the washer and bolt and add a battery.
Flip the lid over, attach the hands, and you’re done!
TIP: If you can’t find clock hands in the color you like, simply paint them with a bit of nail polish. There are so many colors to choose from and it’s much easier than using spray paint.
Now treat yourself to some delicious Walker’s Shortbread for a job well done and enjoy your new clock!
