DIY Design Component Clock

A wall clock is one of those decor elements every home should have. How else would we know it’s coffee o’clock? Deadline coming? Favourite show on TV or time to walk with a dog? Understanding that it’s a certain time of the day and daily tasks have to be done  has a way of snapping me into action, unless… I’m checking it on my phone (where all the social media temptation awaits!). In order to avoid the urge to spend my time ‘working’ on Instagram, rather than getting things done, I have decided to make myself a real clock. Now I can keep on track simply by having a quick look at the wall where it hangs. Magic! You might remember those ancient methods from your history classes. Just kidding – Clocks are still totally in!

Today there are plenty of options and custom possibilities to fit our style, but the best out of all of them is to craft your own design from scratch! Would you agree?

I like to follow recent trends when coming up with my DIY projects – hence the DIY Component Wall Clock combines – the pattern and
form tendencies, making the time a piece of modern Art. Its delicate, natural design will add a unique look to any room in your home.

Supplies:

  • wooden plank
  • round wooden piece (I got mine in white, however if yours is raw, please add white spray paint to the supplies list)
  • a drill
  • speckled pattern paint (granite)
  • painter’s tape
  • clock mechanism
  • strong glue (super attack / super glue)
