DIY: Clocks with Pop!
I found these little clocks the other day at Ikea for just 99¢ each. I grabbed a couple with the idea that I could probably do something with them. I decided I would create each clock in a different timezone: California because that’s where I live (duh), New York for East coast time and Utah because that’s where I’m from.
Using a small screwdriver (the kind you’d use to fix eyeglasses), I took apart the whole clock. It was really simple: 6 screws total. I taped off a small design with some painters tape and used acrylic paint to add a bold pop of color to each clock. I had a few issues with the paint peeling up when I took off the tape so I’d recommend using spray paint or paint pens if you have them. If you do end up using acrylic paint, just make sure to peel up the tape before it’s fully dry and you should be fine.
I used the clock face that the clock originally came with as a template to create a custom face on my computer. Last step is to put the clock back together — again, really easy. And there ya go!
