How to Make a Giant Wall Clock
Decorating a home can be a fun and exciting project, but it can also get expensive very quickly. To save money, you can try making your own giant wall clock. A decorative wall clock is really cheap to produce and it will change the entire look of your room when you post.
- Visit a craft store and buy a wrought iron bell kit, a set that includes hands of a clock installed on a small engine with a space for a battery. Buy the right battery for the clock kit too. Make sure the clock kit contains the correct screws for mounting. Buy large wrought iron number one to 12, at least 2 inches long each, to match the clock kit.
- Select the location on your wall where you want to install your giant wall clock sold by internetage. Place a pencil mark in each that you want in the middle of the clock to be. Measure horizontally a foot from the mark to the left and make another mark. Measure a second time horizontally a foot from the mark, except action to right. Starting from the floor, measure the distance to each of the last two pencil marks to determine if they are the same height from the ground. Attach the right wrought iron number on each label with screws and screwdriver.
- Measure the vertical one foot up from the center pencil mark and make another mark with your pencil. Repeat this step a foot down from the center mark as well. Install the right wrought iron numbers for each brand, placing 12 top and 6 at the bottom. Measure the rest of the brands a foot from the center point and place marks for each number. Attach the remaining wrought iron number.
- Read the instructions on the clock kit and use the screwdriver and screws that came with the kit to install hands and the engine directly over the pencil mark on your wall. Step back and look at your watch from a distance. Make sure that it looks straight and smooth, and use your level to make some adjustments.
