DIY CD Clock
If you're bored and you have a crap load of CDs and DVDs laying around that you haven't found a decent use for, this might kill two birds with one buckshot.
Basically, take a trip to Michaels, Walmart, Target, or any other place that has a crafts section. What you are looking out for is the clock guts. I got mine for around $7. This one should also get the job done. Another item you are gonna need is a super glue. Make sure and pick some of that up. Lastly, dig through your collection of CDs and find one that's real pretty and not so scratched up.
Forgive me if I don't go into great detail on how to actually assemble this.
