A Belt for What? A Unique DIY Wall Clock

A Belt for What? A Unique DIY Wall Clock

Here is an easy idea that redefines wasting time: Suspend a simple clock with a belt to create an instant wall hanging. The result is both minimalist and quirky.

Above: Seen on the Korean blog Naver, a low-profile wall clock rests in the DIY belt hanger.

Above: Most any round, battery-run clock will suffice. Two well-priced models are the Blue Wall Clock (above left); $14.95 from Crate & Barrel, and the Bondis Wall Clock (above right); $19.99 from Ikea. Check out Remodelista’s Simple Kitchen Clocks post for more options.

Above: Scour your closet or peruse your local thrift shop for a sturdy leather or faux-leather belt. If you’re considering a new item, the handmade, well-structured  No. 177 Double Collar Button Belt is a worthy splurge; $150 from Billykirk.

Above: The simplicity and functionality of the hanging complements any interior or room.
