 Now this sounds like fun! There’s an infinite amount of clock designs that you can come up with. You can use about anything to make into a clock, even a tin can if you get creative with it ( haha )! So what kind of clock do you want to make? We see all the same kind of clocks in stores, but nothing that comes close to having a real magical, homey feeling to it. Face it, you’re going to be looking at the clock a lot, so might as well make something you want to look at, rather than just to know what time it is. Make it a part of your home, make it a part of you!
