EASY DIY Pallet Clock!

I wanted a distressed wood clock for my Screen Porch Makeover but all the ones I found were too expensive...so just like you would do...I made one!
This was really really easy peeps! xo
This is the easiest DIY wood clock ever! How do I know? Because I actually did this without any help from The Husband!
First I cut pallet wood to the right size and joined it together with 2 strips of wood and some screws- I drew a circle (20") on the wood.Then using a jigsaw (my 1st time!) I cut out my circle!
After sanding the wood smooth, I found numbers I liked (Fancypants Font) and printed them in the right size...I cut out the numbers and traced them with a pencil onto the wood...
With craft paint I carefully painted in the numbers...
When the paint was dry, I gently sanded the numbers to look weathered...
Add a clock mechanism and your done! I was so proud of this since it's my very first time using the jigsaw! xo

      A good variety can be found on eBay or Etsy. When you are buying the clock mechanism get a high torque one made for the bigger clocks. Also the hands are usually made to work with different sizes, 12, 16 18...30 inches etc
