In this digital age, old-fashioned clocks have a special appeal for home décor. Do up your own unique timepiece using a simple frame and some dominos. Start with a square shadow box frame. Open it and remove the backing and glass. Spray it your desired color – we like white. Next, take a board that you have cut to a size that fits in the frame. Mark the center of the board and drill a hole. Paint the board the same color as the frame. Add a purchased clock mechanism to the center hole, attaching it as shown. Now, hot glue the dominos to the clock face, using the tiles that match the numbers on the clock.

Replace the back of the frame and then put the clock face into the frame as shown. Voila! It’s ready to hang or stand wherever you want a whimsical clock.
