I think this DIY is a great idea for your office or to give it as a present for your husbad/lover/good friend/family member. I was so eager to do it that I forgot to make some step by step pictures but I will write down all the steps. I have seen a few of these floating around and thought it would be a great addition also to my loft/office/craft room.
Love ’em all and decided to copy and add my own spin.
I spray painted the ugly brass clock hands brown and assembled the clock inside the “book.”
I hot glued the covers of the books together, making sure the middle book still opens so I can change batteries when necessary.
Up onto my wood shelves and it is perfect!
Got the clock kit for $3.79 (coupon) and the middle empty cardboard book for $3.00 (on sale) both from Hobby Lobby. I also used two old hardback books I had lying around and fabric I had leftover from other projects. So this is $6.79 total!
Thanks crafty people for the fab inspiration!
