Amazing driftwood DIY clock ideas
Pieces of wood found on the beach, pieces of pallets, simple boards, pieces of all kinds of raw wood. Everything can be transformed, without any difficulty, into exceptional aesthetic wall clocks.
You will combine them in any form you like, in those that do not have such a worn look you can give it by simply painting and then rubbing in places with sandpaper, creating artificial wear on the wood, knocking, scraping or cutting pieces with any sharp object.
You can add, if you want, color with the basic aging technique (minimal color and almost immediately wiping with a cloth so that the surface of the wood remains locally faded by the tint) or you will apply technical decontamination and any other treatment as if it were any wooden object.
The pieces of wood can be nailed with between the simple wood-beams, although they will also be firmly bonded with a strong universal adhesive on any wooden frame of plywood etc., which after completion of the construction will not be distinguished, since place the wood in the desired form.
Glue will also use to create numbers any material if you use pebbles, shells, sea gloves, rope, etc.
In the center, with a pointed object or a universal drill, depending on the thickness of the wood, you will need to open a hole with a diameter so that a common clock mechanism can be wedged. To hang them you can use, depending on their size, either a classic frame hanging directly on the clock wood, adjust a rope or wire to two screws to screw on the back or, especially for very long watches , to pin two slats that will fit on them and the hanging and at the same time will further stabilize the whole structure.
Any type of such a clock will greatly decorate anywhere you place it, especially during the summer months, and it is also a very beautiful idea for very handmade gifts.
