In the world DIY (“Do it yourself”) the options are endless. Today we will see some ideas to create a beautiful custom wall clocks. To get a different and personalized watch we can use one that we have at home, although we can also recycle an old clock and use only the mechanism, discarding the rest. It is also possible to buy only the clock mechanism.
The first option we love, and is made with the typical recycled cable coils, of which we have spoken on several occasions. It’s a matter of sanding the wood well, painting it, drawing the numbers and then varnishing it. This watch is ideal for rustic decorations.
Although the first option we like, the second gives us a whole world of possibilities. We can, for example, make watches with clothing and textiles. For example, take a lot of ties or shoes by arranging them around our pegs to create a nice watch totally customized for our bedroom.
The crochet it is also an option; and that is that we can always weave a colorful clock full of flowers and numbers for a Children’s room.
Our passions can also be reflected in the DIY watches. Thus, bike lovers can reuse a tire to get a nice watch. Also the painters, who with their color palette have the perfect tapestry to create a DIY watch.
The fabrics can be very helpful. We just need a surface, round or square. Once we have it, we will only have to cover it with some fabric that we like and we will have our watch ready.
Who said that the numbers on the clocks must be arranged in a circle or, in some cases, a square? If we could get the numbers in some material, whether plastic, cardboard, or wall stickers, we could build a beautiful clock where the numbers look “messy”, as we see in the image:
