My roommate and I have been trying to figure out cute, inexpensive ways to make are apartment...well, better! Right now, it's nothing but black and white, literally so we are trying to spice it up...add a little pizzazz! Therefore, in the near future, I plan to make this clock! It's very bright and bold and all that you need are 12 long markers (RoseArt, I think),a plastic box (I think I'm going to use a sturdy, plastic lid since it's already round), a drill with drill bits, measuring tape, a pencil, a small clock mechanism and a pair of pliers.
Tah-dah! Super amazing, an easy clock! Not your style? I also found this cool book clock that blew my mind! Click the picture for the link!
