Spotted on designer Molly Madfis's blog Almost Makes Perfect , an easy-to-assemble DIY wall clock that extends the magical blue hour all day long. Photography by Molly Madfis via Almost Makes Perfect .  Above: Molly made her clock from easy-to-source craft store components and acrylic paint. Above: Materials for the clock include a Round Wood Clock Face ($11.15 on Amazon for a 14-inch example made of Baltic birch), a Clock Quartz Movement Kit  ($6.11 on Amazon, but Molly says you might want to spring for one that's less bulky), and painter's tape. Total for materials rings in at about $25, less if you already have paint and brushes. Above: The clock in progress. Read the step-by-step instructions on Almost Makes Perfect .  Above: Start to finish, the project took Molly an hour. The clock hangs in her office above a friendly Fiddle Leaf Fig .
