It’s February, which is pretty much prime DIY season since it kind of sucks outside. And since we’re spending more time indoors in our apartments, we’re definitely going to want them to feel cozy, homey and very sexy.
Oh, and for the whole month of February, we’re bringing you only the cheapest, easiest of Ikea hacks to make your life super easy and your home beautiful.
Today’s Ikea hack is insanely easy and economical. It’s a belted wall clock that looks very expensive, but isn’t.
The parts. You’ll need
- Bondis wall clock – $19.99
- H&M faux leather belt x2 – $12.99 each
- Glue, preferably Krazy Glue or something equally strong
Put the belts together with one end attaching into the holes of another to make a loop. If necessary, glue down the end tabs of the belt so they won’t flop over when hanging.
Now, just add glue to the clock. Make a strip of glue from the bottom to halfway up each side, along the middle of the outside of the clock. Now attach the belt so the buckles meet with approximately where the glue stops, at the sides of the clock. Let the glue dry thoroughly. Attach the clock to the wall with a heavy duty nail or screw that can support its weight, and you’re done!
