Ikea Hack : The Lustigt Terracotta Clock

Sometimes, you don’t know exactly what a DIY will look like. Indeed, when we decided to make a DIY clock with Candice, we have first chosen to use a cardboard box lid. Let’s say the result wasn’t really nice… like it was a disaster.

We decided to look for another way to make it and Candice had a brilliant idea (#foronce), and suggested to use the Ikea Lustigt lacing beads box ! So let’s discover how to hack this Ikea product to make this beautiful and fun terracotta clock !
