Wall Clock DIY – Use Your Logo!

A wall clock DIY can add so much personality to your space. OK, so it’s not a far stretch to upcycle a clock into a DIY clock. But when I stumbled upon an Umbra clock at my local Value Village, it struck me that I didn’t yet have one for my craft studio. Grab any old clock and adorn it with your own logo to make it unique! 

Here’s how it started out:

Use a Thrifted Clock for Your Wall Clock DIY

With a vinyl sticker, I knew I could turn this thrift store clock into a one-of-a-kind piece to sport my Birdz of a Feather logo. Once I saw the price, it was a no-brainer; you can’t even buy a clock mechanism for that!

The clock is battery operated and held on by a nut and some washers. It was so easy to take it apart with a socket wrench.

Once it’s apart, clean it with rubbing alcohol so the sticker will adhere well. Peel back a small section of the sticker and position it.

Squeegee Your Wall Clock DIY

Because I didn’t use a graphic squeegee applicator to smooth it out as I peeled the backing, I ended up with air bubbles everywhere! In that case, if you make that mistake too, you can use a safety pin to carefully pick up an edge and peel it off again (one half at a time). Then lay it down smoothly again with the squeegee. You just can’t do it without a tool! If you don’t have a squeegee, a credit card will also work in a pinch.

Put the clock works back in the order they were taken off and you’re done! And so my Birdz of a Feather logo clock was born! A one-of-a-kind clock face image to adorn my new craft space.

Hang Your New Wall Clock DIY

You might remember the vintage hutch shelf Hubs and I upcycled a few months ago. Thinking the clock would look great hanging from the pegboard, I used a plastic hook especially made for pegboard to hold it on.

All-in-all, not a bad little project for $1.50 + the cost of the vinyl sticker!
