It’s not that hard to create a masterpiece: just take knitting needles and knit a clock, or paint a wooden board with watercolors and attach it to a clockwork mechanism, or even glue some cutlery to a pan lid.
We at SmallJoys have collected 15 simple yet really wonderful ideas to make your own unique clocks that you can’t buy anywhere.
The Seamstress Clock
Some hoops, buttons, and a clockwork kit — and here you go, looking good!
For Monty Python fans
A clock with legs, not hands — those of John Cleese from The Ministry of Silly Walks — will go well with any interior.
The Tenderness Clock
It won’t take too much effort to make such a tender little thing.
The Sea Breeze Clock
Take a couple of wood boards and stones you lovingly collected on a beach. Paint them, attach it all to the clockwork mechanism, and amaze your guests.
Brighter than a rainbow
Add some color to your walls!
You would think clock hands on a couple of boards might be boring, yet it’s just the opposite! You will need a clockwork kit, 9-10 small boards for the face, 2-3 small boards for the other side, an hour or two of your time, and a real wish to have something exceptional decorating your wall.
Warm and cozy
Not only smartphones need cases!
If you can crochet, why not make your own original clock? Just choose the wool, the pattern, and away you go!
This one will take some practice. You’ll need a wooden base, a clockwork kit, 80 small nails, colorful threads, and a lot of patience.
Make everything count
Farewell to stereotypes! The kitchen isn’t only for cooking — take a couple of pan lids and different pieces of kitchenware and make a handy masterpiece.
A clock out of a bicycle wheel? No problem.
Mad tea party
This beauty will require a tray and several teacups.
A fresh view on old newspapers
Hesitant to throw out newspapers and magazines?
Who says dominoes is only a game? Take a wood board as a base, add 12 domino tiles, some glue, a clockwork mechanism, and make a cool-looking designer clock.
This one will require quite a bit of effort, but it’s definitely worth it.
