Time to Make a Clock!

I may need to rearrange some artwork and find space for this DIY wall clock.

 

I saw it while browsing e.louise's website and knew that I had to blog about it.  You can buy the kit, including frames, from the British store, but I think this would be a fun and easy DIY. 

Round up inexpensive frames from IKEA or a craft store, paint them all one color or various colors, as pictured above.  Then all you need are wall clock hands - most come with dots and a template that you can use to help arrange the frames - and you're set!

If I do this, I would frame modern, graphic patterned paper and trace/draw the number on top.  You can also buy numbers from any craft store - look for a fun font! 

I think this is such a creative idea - is there anyone out there who has tried this?  If so, please share your results!  I would love to see them.  If I end up doing this, I will of course share the process with you!
