DIY Clocks

A clock can be made out of just about anything that you can cut a hole in to fit a pin through. Here is a photo of what the clock’s mechanism looks like. You can buy them with hands on Amazon for under $10.

The pin, just hast to go through the center of whatever you want to make the clock from. The hands attach to the front of the clock movement. You don’t necessarily have to have numbers even since most people can tell what time it is without seeing the actual number.

You can make a clock out of anything. It doesn’t even have to be round. It can be anything that is meaningful to you. Here are three I found that might give you some ideas.

The first clock is made from a bicycle wheel (see my DIY version here), which I seem to have lots of extras because my husband is always changing his. This second clock has a hole in a round piece of wood, and there’s a leather strap around the outside to hang it. The third clock is one that I designed on PicMonkey, and it is for sale on Amazon (no affiliate link, I just like it). I’m an animal lover so I’ve come up with a few different animal silhouettes.

If you haven’t tried hanging a clock in your home, try it and I promise you won’t go back. Be sure to get a clock with a silent movement so there is no loud ticking noise. Clocks are a budget friendly piece of art that can go in every room.

Before you go, you might also enjoy budget friendly artwork alternatives and where to buy vintage posters.
