It’s nice to have a little project for January, for the new year (…for lockdown) and to create something personal for the home.

Designing and creating your own clock is simple and then you can personalise this piece of homeware to the colours and style of your own interior.

You can pick up clock blank faces with the mechanism from eBay, Amazon, and craft shops like HobbyCraft .

We’ve collated lots of great designs but you simply need paint and masking tape and you’re ready to go.

We love TheSpruceCrafts tutorial.
