Our kids’ enthusiasm about telling the time has made us decide that not having clocks around is just plain unacceptable, so we’ve decided to fix that problem… by using our DIY skills, of course! Sure, there are plenty of neat, stylish clocks that we could simply purchase in stores, but where’s the fun in that when we could create and customize precisely the kind of clock we’d like to have however we please instead?
Wooden DIY Wall Clocks
Perhaps your personal style or the scheme you’ve built in your home is actually a little more fun or art deco inspired, with lots of visual patterns and pops of colour involved? In that case, maybe something with some colour blocking and bright detail would be a little more up your alley! Get the tutorial from Brit + Co.
DIY IKEA Clock
A pile of paint chips can be your inspiration for a colorful and unique wall clock. Gather them all and cut them into small squares. Then, using a simple clock you can find at Ikea or pretty much anywhere for that matter, position the squares on the clock surface to determine the placement. Glue them in place one by one. You can then also add something cute in the middle. Get the tutorial from Kojo Designs.
DIY Donut Wall Clock
Speaking of fun, kitschy clock ideas, here’s an absolutely awesome and super bright graphic clock idea outlined step by step! We love the way this lock pays simple tribute to a delicious treat that makes just about everyone we know feel more cheerful. This clock would look great in a kids’ playroom or perhaps even in a main room like the kitchen if your decor scheme is really bright and full of other unique statement pieces like this. Get the tutorial from Why Don’t You Make Me.
DIY Vintage Book Clock Table Number
Using a vintage book, clock numbers and paint, personalize your own treasure and set the time to be the table number… very creative! Get the tutorial from Hill City Bride.
DIY Sliced Cake Wall Clock
Did we kind of peak your interest when we started talking about the doughnut clock design that we showed you before, because you just loved the idea of bright colours and sprinkles hanging somewhere prominently in your home, but you’ve actually never really been a big fan of doughnuts? Well, in that case, we guess it wouldn’t really make sense to hang one on your wall, no matter how cute they look. Instead, we’d suggest keeping the dessert theme alive but customizing it to your tastes by creating something like this cake clock. Get the tutorial from Shelterness.
Salvaged Junk Farmhouse Clock
Salvaged Junk farmhouse clock and sign. Thanks to the inspiring book A Touch Of Farmhouse Charm, these two reclaimed wood projects are farmhouse perfect! Get the tutorial from Funky Junk Interiors.
