I am showing you how to make is this really cute DIY patterned clock and how I decorated my new desk.
To see how to make two more really cute Pinterest inspired DIYs for your desk or to follow along with how to make the clock be sure to watch the video!
All you will need is some scrapbook paper and a clock, I found a cheap white one at Target for only $4. 
Start by unscrewing the back of the clock.
Next remove the hands from the center.
Then trace the front of the clock on the scrapbook paper and cut it out.
If you need to, trim the sides a little so it will fit inside and then secure it with double sided tape. 
Then just place the paper on top of the clock and press it down to make sure it sticks.
Finally just put the hands and back onto the clock.
And that's it! The great thing about this DIY is that it can be customized with any color or pattern of scrapbook paper to fit the theme and colors of your room. 
This is how I decorated my desk:
My desk is the Deluxe Writing desk with hutch by home loft concepts and I got it from Wayfair.
To decorate it, I went with a pink and blue theme.
On the top of the hutch I placed my blue Bose speaker, the DIY clock, a picture of me and Kelsea Ballerini, and a fake plant from target. 
I strung some battery operated fairly lights around everything.  Fairy lights are one of my favorite things to put in my room, they just make everything so cute.
In the letter slots I put some blue and pink cards as well as some cute card boxes. 
I put my pink Polaroid camera on the shelf on the other side. 
In the middle I placed the DIY desk calendar and a gold pencil holder from target. 
Finally, above my desk I hung some Polaroids on this gold triangle holder that I got from Urban Outfitters.
