This one is made with Friendlyfelt, some straps, clips and a zip. Jen didn’t write a tutorial for the bag, but she describes the process well enough that anyone could give it a try!

Zelda Vinyl Record Clock

Friday, January 8th, 2016

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from browsing the many craft and DIY sites on the internet, it’s that just about anything can be upcycled and repurposed into amazing and wonderful things. I never made the connection between vinyl records and clocks until today, when I found this cool item!

Zelda Vinyl Clock

This clock, from Vinylastico on Etsy, features Link and Zelda in a pretty Art Nouveau styled design. It’s 12″ (30cm), It’d look awesome on any wall!
The shop also sells tons of other clocks, including ones from games and movies, as well as custom designs!

VGameCraft on Etsy made this pretty sweet Zelda stained glass style lamp:

The stained glass part is made of acrylic, and the base is made of pine plywood. Etched into the base are Hylian words that say:

Zelda Lightforce

And the force of the golden light, embodied in Hyrule’s princess, shone forth upon the lands.”

And it lights up! VGameCraft has a video on Youtube that shows it when lit so be sure to check that out!

The lamp itself is a wooden 7″x7″x7″ cube and features different designs from the Legend of Zelda series. It looks lovely when it’s off, but simply wonderful when switched on!
