As Custom Art
Make your own clock with these three easy steps:
- Step 1: Find an off-the-shelf piece of wood (most hardware stores sell them) and apply three coats of chalkboard paint.
- Step 2: Buy a kit containing battery-operated clock innards (Karlsson DIY Wall Clock, conranusa.com). Simply hammer a nail into the center of the painted wood piece and hang the clock mechanism (which has a hook) on the nail.
- Step 3: Write the numbers in colored chalk. Or draw squiggles or happy faces in place of numbers―whatever strikes you. The best part is you can erase and replace.
