It’s time for a new DIY project. There are so many clocks, small, big, noisy or exuberant. Best of all of course is when you’re able to make your own clock. And even better if it’s a clock made out of discarded objects or materials. When I saw this upcycle design clock I liked it so much I had to share it with you. Not only because it looks great, but also because it’s fairly easy to make.
Bicycle wheel tells time
One of the DIY projects published on upcycleDZINE was a Pallet Wood Clock by Becky Marshall. Pallet wood is very popular when it comes to upcycling. Another object that you’ll see in several posts on this blog is a bicycle wheel, rim. And that’s what this next upcycle design piece is all about.
This Bicycle Wheel Clock is an upcycle design by KariAnne Wood, based in Kentucky | USA and founder of very creative blog Thistlewood Farms. The clock is basically made out of a used bicycle wheel, a yardstick and a clock kit. And to give the clock more character she put the whole thing against a chalkboard and wrote some roman numerals on the board with chalk.
I guess if you’re a bicycle fan and love to make things, or you’re looking for a unique clock with a story, this should definitely be a project worth trying. KariAnne wrote a fantastic DIY tutorial with very helpful photos explaining every step.
