I feel like I've been hunting for the perfect affordable clock for ages. Perhaps that's a bit dramatic, but it hasn't been an easy task. In a late night pinning session, I stumbled across this beautiful spotty wall clock and, lo and behold, it's a DIY!
Since you don't need to make any of the mechanics (you can purchase the parts as a kit), the tutorial is relatively easy and straightforward. You can even customize it with a pattern of your choice if you aren't crazy about dots. Really, there's no excuse to be late ever again!
