OMG! Make your own clock from any photo! www.abeautifulmess.comDIY Photo Wall Clock! 1I don't know why, but I always had the impression that making a DIY clock would be really tedious and stressful. Boy was I wrong! This cute, customized photo clock is simple to make in about an hour. Really! It's that easy. You're going to love it. The idea was a perfect fit for our collaboration with Canon USA, so we used our MG6320 to print that adorable pug picture.

Supply list: Canon Semi-Gloss Photo Paper Plus, glue, clock kit, nail polish, X-Acto knifeDIY Photo Wall Clock! 2Step 1. Print your favorite front facing photo!

Step 4: Assemble the clock. Cut a small hole in the middle of your pet’s face and follow the instructions to mount your clock kit (you are just inserting your pet’s face where the clock face would usually go). Cut out four small paper dots and glue the dots onto the clock to indicate the noon, three, six, and nine o’clock positions.
