Decorating with Large Wall Clocks

Decorating a home can be a fun and exciting project, but it can become expensive very quickly. To save money, try making your own giant wall clock. A giant decorative wall clock is inexpensive to make and it will change the look of your entire room once you hang it.


Visit PhoenixWallClocks for a cheap decorative clock, and a craft store and buy a wrought iron clock kit, a set that includes the hands of a clock installed a small engine with a place for a battery. Buy the correct battery for the clock kit as well. Make sure the clock kit includes the correct screws for installation. Buy a lot of wrought iron in a 12, at least two inches long each, to match the clock kit.

Select the location on your wall where you want to install your giant wall clock. Place a pencil mark at the exact spot you want the center of the clock either. Measure horizontally a foot from the mark to the left and make another mark. Measure again horizontally a foot from the mark when measuring clockwise. From the surface, to measure the distance of each of the last two pencil marks to determine if they are the same height from the ground. Set the number of wrought iron right at each mark with screws and your screwdriver.

Measure vertically a foot of the center pencil mark and make another mark with your pencil. Repeat this step one foot down the center mark as well. Install the correct wrought iron numbers for each brand, placing the 12 at the top and 6 on the bottom. Measure the remaining marks a walk from the center point and place marks for each number. Affix the remaining wrought iron numbers.

Read the instructions on the clock kit and use your screwdriver and screws supplied with the kit to install the engine and hands directly over the pencil mark on your wall. Step back and look at your clock away. Make sure it looks right and even, and use your level to make adjustments if necessary.
