After doing two previous concrete DIYs (concrete cement plantersconcrete phone docks) we thought it was time to step up our game and go for something a little more complex. A concrete clock sounds super cool and not too hard, or so we thought… In the spirit of honesty, we had to attempt this DIY a total of three times because every time it just didn’t work right. Don’t let that scare you though, we’ve developed the absolute best way to make a concrete clock and filmed it all for you!
