It’s a DIY pom pom clock you guys! I am not sure why I never made one before, because I am officially obsessed with my new pom pom clock! It is such a statement piece and since I made it really large, it completely draws in the eye. So, it really is as simple as glueing pom poms to a piece of wood, but I will go through my detailed steps below.
Tell me you aren’t as obsessed as I am!
Don’t mind the extra stuff in the photo (I had to reuse a photo from a different clock project because I forgot to take a starting photo!)
Begin by making tons of pom poms. I used a pom pom maker in a few sizes to get a variety. Some solids, some mixed. Just play around and make a ton! In all you will likely need around 50-70 pom poms depending on the size you make them.
Once all your pom poms are made, just use the hot glue to attach them to the wood round. Then find the middle of the round and screw in your 3.5″ screw leaving it sticking out quite a bit so that the movement doesn’t hit the pom poms. Next, hang the clock movement on the screw (I painted my movement white first, but that is completely optional). The movement that I used just hangs on the front of the clock which make the whole process quite simple.
The last step is to add your mounting hardware onto the back of the clock and hang it on the wall.
To say I am obsessed with this DIY pom pom clock is a understatement! And of course I went with all the colors for my clock, but it totally works. However, you can do this project in any color palate you like.
