Pallet Clock

It’s a double hitter–two pallet projects in one day!  I just had to show off the great wall clock Mandy–and her husband–at Sugar Bee Crafts made from a pallet.

Mandy started with a typical pallet.  She recently discovered that there Michael’s sells clock making supplies, so she picked up everything else she needed there.  To add a bit of color and flair to this project, Mandy spray painted the clock pieces a pretty shade of aqua blue.  Now that it is hanging on her wall, Mandy says, “I just love to sit back and stare at it.  And here the comforting tick-tock.  I really enjoy the dimension that the pallet gives to the wall.  And before it was just a blank wall above the piano – this fills the space perfectly.”  Great project, Mandy!

Stenciled Pallet Clock

You never know what someone is going to think of to make from a pallet, these days.  At Flamingo Toes, Bev made a really neat looking wall clock from one.

There are several things I like about this project.  One is that Bev kept the pallet intact but cut it into the shape of a circle.  I’d never thought of doing that!  Another thing I like is that along with making the clock, Bev actually made her own stencil to decorate the face of this clock.  Her method is ingenious, and she offers a detailed tutorial on it.  The finished clock is beautiful, and I’m sure it will be a conversation piece.
