Pallet Look Wall Clock
This wall art piece is unique, to say the least. I think im the fiirst
to come up with this idea as when i searched online, there were no
projects like it. There are similar pallet look items , such as coaster
but nothing that hangs on a wall. Until now. In my opinion this is
one of my best projects, and it's pretty easy to do too.
WHAT YOU NEED:
20 or so X-large Paint sticks
STOP: dont lecture me, I really didnt steal any they keep them
Behind the counters. I asked them if sold any, they said no, how
many do you need, we dont sell theses. I said 40, they gave me
40. They had twosizes, regular and extra large. Here in the
midwest, I guess peopleare just nicer about things. I only needed
about 17 as it turns out.
WHAT YOU DO:
First before doing any glueing, set out your paint sticks so
you can figure out how many you need. Then apply stain to
The wood on one side. I applied stain to the plain side only.
I knew I would make the worded side face down.
Let dry, then using the wood glue the sticks together to make
it look like a pallet.
While the glue dries, assemble the clock and get your numbers
ready. Once everything is set arrange and glue on your numbers.
Place the clock box in the center and attach with velcro on the
back for easy battery changes.
Hang on your wall and enjoy your new unique piece of wall art!
A video tutorial::::::
NOTE: in the video i stained half the wood, then glued. Then
stained the top. I was going to do something different for the
numbers, but my test piece didnt come out that well. Thats
why the directions are different than the video.I also changed the look by using Velcro to hang the clock box.
Keep It Easy!
