Instruction to Create Modern Decorative Wall Clock
Here are the steps that you need to follow in order to create a beautiful wall clock with your favourite photos:

The first and foremost step in creating a marvelous photo wall clock is to buy a modern clock black. You can buy a beautiful wall clock from any online platform (there are many out there).
Creating a wall clock out of your favourite photos will not only provide you with a beautiful focal point for any room in your house, but it also helps you save a lot of money that you would otherwise spend in getting it customized professionally.
You can choose to buy a clock in any shape and any size depending on the look you want to create. Also, you will have to see the number of photos you want to add to your clock before picking the size of the clock.
For instance, if you want only one picture to be incorporated into your clock, you can buy a small or medium-sized clock. Whereas, if you plan to incorporate too many pictures from your favourite trip or wedding, then buying a large-sized clock is advised.
No matter which size and shape of clock you opt for, make sure it goes well with your existing décor. A beautiful photo wall clock can serve as the focal point of your favourite room.
STEP 2: Sort out your pictures
Once you have got your wall clock, it's time to sort out your pictures. Of course, DIY projects are time-consuming endeavours. You need to be very careful about every step. Sorting photos in advance is imperative.
Of course, you cannot redo everything once done (it's clumsy ?). However, sorting photos in advance can help you create a stunning modern decorative wall clock.
STEP 3: Edit your photos
If you're using digital images, make sure to edit them. There are numerous online FREE tools that you can use to edit your photos.
You can use any online photo editing tool to make your image(s) look flawless. You can perform a wide variety of photo editing tasks, such as brightening, color correcting, background correction, removing distractions, sharpening, whitening teeth, cropping, adding effects, and more, with a photo editing tool. The best thing is these tools are easy to use. You can even add text to a photo (if you wish to ??).
STEP 4: Get your photos printed
Once you have edited your picture, it's time to have your photo(s) printed. Make sure to have your prints professionally done on high-quality paper for long-lasting results.
STEP 5: Crop your image(s)
Cut or crop your printed photo so that it fits into a circle or square, depending on the shape of your clock. Make sure that it is the same size as the face of your clock.
STEP 6: Make modern clock black
Now, it's time to make your wall clock out of your favourite photos. Here is how you can do it:
Take the photograph that has been cropped into a circle with the same diameter as the face of the clock.
Locate the exact middle of the picture and make a mark there.
Using an X-Acto knife, carve an X on the dot that you just marked.
Disassemble the clock in order to insert a picture behind the hands of the clock. Remove the protective glass by unscrewing the rear of the clock.
Take off the hands of the clock.
Now, position the photo so that it is flat on the clock face. The X in the middle of the picture should be big enough for the gears that move the clock's hands. Using an X-Acto knife, make a hole in the middle of the photo so that it may be hung horizontally against the clock face.
Using glue, fix the photograph on the face of the clock.
Once done with sticking the photo, it's time to place the clock hands and reassemble the clock using the screws.
That's all! You're now done!
