DIY Component Wall Clock

A wall clock is one of those decor elements every home needs. How else would we know it’s coffee o’clock? Favourite show on TV? Deadline coming or time to walk with a dog?


Knowing that it’s a certain time of the day, when certain things have to be done has a way of snapping me into action, unless… I’m checking it on my phone, where all the social media temptation awaits! In order to avoid the urge to spend my time ‘working’ on Instagram, rather than getting things done, I have decided to make myself a real clock. Now I can keep on track simply by having a quick look at the wall where it hangs. Magic! You might remember those ancient methods from your history classes. Just kidding – Clocks are still totally in!

If you would like to design craft your own clock design from scratch like I did, follow the tutorial below:

You will need:

Super cute and simple! Will try it with a cork plate. Maybe it works as well.
