DIY: A Color-Blocked Wall Clock for $25

Spotted on designer Molly Madfis’s blog Almost Makes Perfect, an easy-to-assemble DIY wall clock that extends the magical blue hour all day long.

Above: Molly made her clock from easy-to-source craft store components and acrylic paint.

Above: Materials for the clock include a Round Wood Clock Face ($11.15 on Amazon for a 14-inch example made of Baltic birch), a Clock Quartz Movement Kit ($6.11 on Amazon, but Molly says you might want to spring for one that’s less bulky), and painter’s tape. Total for materials rings in at about $25, less if you already have paint and brushes.

Above: Start to finish, the project took Molly an hour. The clock hangs in her office above a friendly Fiddle Leaf Fig.
