Keeping with the theme of the kitchen, consider a cutting board clock for your home. Often this style of clock is a subtle but stated piece of decor since the warm tone of the wooden cutting board is aesthetically pleasing and the traditional wood means it’s not overdone with minute details. These clocks feature a simple face, usually stained into the wood, with clear hands and numerals. This charming accessory can be hung in a spot that inspires you to try new recipes.

8. Cuckoo Clock

A special way to display your photos is through a picture frame clock. You can gather some select moments of things and people that you love and use it to create a clock where each hour is a different photograph. Some clocks come premade where you’re able to slip your photographs into the hour marks, but you can also use your own pictures and frames to create a clock. You just need to get the mechanism and hands, which are usually available at any craft store.

10. Whiteboard Clock
