Sunburst Paint Stick Clock DIY

How many times did I want to know the time when working on my Redo Furniture, always with messy gloves full of paint trying to use the cell, not to mention going in the house with paint tracks from my feet or gloves to check on the time. SOLUTION a clock in the GARAGE!!!
Now I have seen sunburst mirrors in magazines and from DIY bloggers, why not a sunburst clock from all my messy paint sticks??

I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!
More pictures below, cuz it makes me smile and so handy now!!! 
OK, Now Guppy lumpy paint sticks from my Redo's
plus 1 paint lid some hot glue and of course from Michael's
a clock part!

It was hard to wait for the glue to dry, so anxious to put the batteries
in,  hurry, hurry hot glue!

The clock is hanging on the only bare wall in the over stuffed garage from my Shabby Stuff, Husband Stuff and More of my Stuff..... The only clear spot is where he parks, that's what keeps the peace! 
So the paint job you see on this wall was done quickly, I had to do something to cover the sheet rock and tapping on the wall for some photo's.  Unfortunately I am unable to get big pieces of furniture into the house for photo's!
I am just lucky enough to get them into the garage and the doors down before everyone can see the mess!

Thanks for looking!  Time to Go!
