IKEA Hack - Jewelled Clock

Links to this project
Like the DIY camouflage clock and DIY Food Clock, this simple clock here is also done using the IKEA RUSCH wall clock.

I reused the original numbered clock face by reversing it. I glued faux rhinestones to replace the numbers. Faux rhinestones are glued around the outer case of the clock as well as the hands too. The second hand has a flower on it, so the flower moves by the second.

Ladybird Stopper

Links to this project
I made the boring stopper for my soap dispenser refill into something more interesting.

I painted the stopper using puff paint and waited for it to dry before I add another coat of puff paint. I glued googly eyes and used a black marker for the spots.

Soap Refill Hack

Links to this project
This is a post on a hack on a soap refill for an auto soap dispenser.

I cut an hole on the top of the plastic refill using a heated cutter and smoothed the rough edge by carefully melting it with a light. I used a stopper to cover the opening which only cost me 10cents.

Now I just need to top up with normal hand soap instead of buying the original refill just to use the dispenser.
