Here are a few ideas from Cat Soderstrom on how you can make DIY kitchen wall clock using things that can be found in your home (and a clock mechanism).
Easy and Simple DIY Kitchen Wall Clock Project Ideas
Plates can be turned into beautiful timepieces; just think of all the fun designs you can find. But even a plain plate works – it becomes an understated and modern clock. All you need to do is very carefully drill a hole in the middle of the plate, then attach the clock mechanism and mount it on the wall. Or if you are using an heirloom or a plate you’d rather not drill through, look for an adhesive clock mechanism you can just add to the front.
An old pan, spoons, and forks can also be used to make a clock. Drill a hole in the middle of the pan. Use a strong adhesive to glue the spoons and forks in place of numbers on the pan, and wait for it to dry. If the pan has a handle, just put a nail or hook on the wall and you can easily hang it from there.
When dining out at a restaurant where you like the look of the menu, ask if you may keep one and then turn it to a wall clock. All you have to do is once again drill a hole in the middle and attach the clock parts. If it cannot hold the clock parts on its own, glue it on a sturdy piece of cardboard before adding the clock mechanism. Another alternative is using an old cook book as the face of the clock.
You can also take pictures of fruits, vegetables, wines and glasses, or any random objects in your kitchen and put them in picture frames and make a wall clocks out of them. Or use dry flowers and mod podge them onto a plate or pan for a country kitchen-type clock.
Fun bottle caps can be recycled and used as numbering for a DIY wall clock. Use an old baking pan, plate or tray, glue each cap on to represent the numbers and drill a hole in the middle for the clock mechanism.
