Clock kits available to buy here at the Den.
Kit includes clock mechanism, pine hoop and interfacing.
Just add your own fabric and trims.
When you can’t find that perfect clock to match a bedroom, nursery or your craft room – Make it yourself!
The DIY clock kit + your chosen fabric makes it quick and easy to create a clock to suit any room.
Check out the step by step ‘How-to’ below before you start.
1. Place the larger hoop on the provided interfacing and trace around the inner edge of the hoop. Repeat to mark 2 circles.
Cut out both circles, just inside the traced line. Place the shiny side of the interfacing against the wrong side of your fabric and press with a warm iron until it adheres.
Repeat with the second circle of interfacing on top of the first.
Cutout the fabric 5cm away from the interfacing.
Once firm, trim excess fabric.
3. Measure across the middle of the hoop on multiple angles to find and mark the centre.
Place the black backing ring over the centre mark. Cut a hole that is just smaller than the ring.
Position this ring over the gold clock mechanism before the next step.
Push the clock mechanism through the centre hole. First slide the gold washer on, then tighten with the nut and push on each of the hands (they only fit one way so you can’t get it wrong).
The best part? if you redecorate, you can just remove the fabric and start over!
