My sister-in-law has a penchant for clocks. She likes them in all shapes and sizes. In fact, there’s an entire wall in their house that’s dedicated to her collection of clocks. They’re set to different time zones and a lot of her guests find them interesting.

Simple and inexpensive, clocks like this one would make nice house warming gifts.

For her birthday, my husband (her brother) decided to give her something special. We found a great DIY project and thought that it was the perfect present for her. It’s a wood block clock that we were sure she’d greatly appreciate – and she liked it! The finished product is a vintage-looking clock that’s now in her daughter’s bedroom.

This is a simple, easy-to-make project. You can give these clocks as a nice house warming present. It’s not only nice to look at, it’s also functional and hand-made with love.
