August means getting ready for the upcoming fall season, back to school, sports season and the holidays. Hi everyone, it’s Jessica at Decor Adventures and I have an easy project to keep you on time for all the activities you and your family have planned these next months, a DIY clock. Did you know you could make your own clock? It’s super easy to put together and you can paint or decorate it to perfectly match your home’s decor. Let’s get started.
- Clock kit
- Double sided tape
- Wooden tray to make your clock
- Paint (optional)
- Decorative paper
- Spray adhesive (optional)
- Drill and drill bits
- Hanging hardware
1. To make this clock, I found a 99 cent tray at the thrift store. I knew it would be great for this project because it can hang on the wall and will conceal the clock kit inside the tray. You could also use a picture frame without glass or even some other creative object you’d like to use for your clock face. Make sure it’s something flat so your clock kit will fit into it.
2. The back of the tray will actually become the face of my clock. To prepare it, prime your tray.
