We needed clocks but I wasn’t liking the options I was seeing around, so I decided to make my own with a clock kit like this one that costs about $4-$8 online or in craft stores.
First clock: I embroidered (although I didn’t really know what I was doing) the numbers on some fabric and stapled it onto a cardboard circle I had cut out with a hole through the middle.
The second clock: This one is still kind of a work in progress. I made a small circle with cardboard for the clock circle and then ordered some vintage house numbers from this etsy shop (it cost me $5 total for all the numbers). I’d like to get some cooler looking numbers so I’m going to keep my eye out for them at flea markets etc to swap in, but this is a good start I think. Or I could use pictures too if I got sick of the numbers. It’s very versatile.
As I mentioned before, I love how you can make anything into a clock. This will not be the end of my clock making pursuits.
