Prime Time Clock (Nerd Alert!) // DIY

My mom and I are nerds. There's really no denying it (just look at the title of this blog!)

So for Christmas, I made my mom a clock. But not any old clock. Oh noooo, this is a prime time clock.

Yup. A prime time clock. It has prime numbers. Feel free to laugh now.

Read on to learn how to make one of your very own!

-Wall Clock
-Black, White, & Gold Acrylic Paint
-On hand: computer, printer, printer paper, pencil, scissors


1 & 2. Unscrew the back of the clock and remove the glass. Paint the base of the clock black.

3 & 4. After printing your numbers and the words "prime time," cut them to size, color the back with pencil, and trace them onto the clock in the order you prefer. 

I just used the first twelve prime numbers (according to the internet, a prime number is any number greater than one that cannot be divided by anything other than itself and one.)

5. After tracing, paint in the numbers and letters with white paint and then paint the clock hands with gold (or another color!) paint to make them stand out.

6. Put back the glass and screw it in to secure.
