This Sunday, June 17th is Father's Day, and if you're still stumped on a unique gift idea, look no further. This project I came across on Remodelista is so simple, you'll still have time to plan a barbecue lunch! (Originally posted on Norwegian blog Brigg.)

You've surely come across some captain's mirrors, and this is a version of those nautical-inspired mirrors we love so much. A clock is even more practical, and would be the perfect accessory in a kitchen, home office or cottage. Plus, I think the leather belts make it masculine and sophisticated enough for dad.

If you already have two old leather belts you can use, this project won't cost you much at all! First, pick up a simple black wall clock. Next, use two worn belts to create a suspension ring with suitable length. Glue the belts to the clock, let dry, and hang!

The concept is so simple, but the look is so effective! And dad will appreciate something handmade and practical.
