The most fun DIY clocks
Hello! It’s me again, Midsommarflicka, with another collection of fun DIYs!
Clocks are one of the things most of us will need in their daily life. But they are still also one of the most neglected things when it comes to home decor. This doesn’t have to be!
Yuo can get a clock kit in every craft store, this will include the clockwork, the hands and a little instruction how to assemble everything in the proper sequence.
(Please remember to pin the individual DIYs from the original site!)
Do you like something silly? Really silly? Like a Monthy Python inspired Silly Walk Clock?!
Is there a little astronaut in you? Then why don’t get the moon into your home if you can’t get to the moon with this Moon Clock. (The tutorial is in Finnish, but it’s so simple that you will understand it, promise!) Or, if you’re more down to eath you could also print a photo of the earth instead of the moon. Or one of Saturn, or …
Instead of printing a planet, why not use one of your pet? In fact you can use everything to make Photo Wall Clock!
Or … how about some upcycling and doing a (Gold) Record Clock. Sure spray-painting the record isn’t a must here.
Remeber the cork trivet that was used as a background for the moon clock? Why not showcase the cork even more with a Corkboard Lace Clock?
Or just paint the cork in different patterns to create a Color Block Clock!
And how awesome is the idea to use an emvroidery hoop and some fabric in it as base? And if you use fabric in an embroidery hoop … then why don’t work with the fabric before making it into a clock? You could do a Silkscreen Clock! Hello?! (I’m a bit of print technology obsessed so please excuse me for a minute while I make a little happy dance …… okay, done.)
And if things can be put into a embroidery hoop they can also be put in photo frames, right? Right. Photo Frame Clock tutorial here!
And now for something totally different: (So sorry, but I left my brain obviously at Monty Pysthon after number 1). Make a Book Clock!
And what belongs to books? Cookies. Cookies and a book is the perfect way to spend an afternoon. And of course you can also make a Cookie Tin Clock, no problem!
And if you like something more simple and natural, you may want to use planks from, for example an old wine crate, and build a Wooden Clock!
See you next time! Until then meet me on my blog. And if you decide to build the last clock I showed you here and have some planks left you could build a towel rack out of it. Or a shelf. Or a lamp. At least that’s what I was doing when I had so much wooden planks in my hands! ;)
