Creative Clocks: How to Make Your Own Clock
Learn how to make your own clock in an inexpensive and creative way to add your personality to your décor. It also makes a nice personalized gift. I have recently noticed unique clocks in magazines and at department stores like Target. There was a great piece, a clock made out of colorful forks, knives, and spoons for your kitchen. Why not do it yourself for half the price?
A clock kit can be purchased for about $8.00 at any craft store. Here is some inspiration to get you started.
- A Clock of Frames
- A White Board Clock
- For the more adventurous, a clock made out of hard drives.
- My favorites from Country Living, include a Book Clock, Frame Clock, and Fabric Clock.
If you just use your imagination, you can make a decorative wall clock with almost anything! It is a very simple DIY project. Just follow the instructions on your kit. Depending on your chosen timepiece, you may need to use a drill for a hole or you may need to attach a picture hanger as well. Consider making a clock out of an old book, a decorative tin tray, an existing painting on canvas, cooking utensils, or an old record album (is “old record album” an oxymoron?). There you have it… an inexpensive and unique piece of DIY wall art and another great idea to turn your trash into treasure.
