Meg at Decor It Yourself just did this week’s episode about making your own clock. It’s so simple, and can add some real personality to your space! You can buy a clock mechanism online, or take apart a bland clock and use that one!

    I did this a few months ago using a free clock (drug company giveaway) and taking a photo of Mom’s dog and covering the old dial. Mom loved it and it didn’t cost me a thing!
