My boys have a large United States map mural in their room. I have been wanting to do something fun with the space, so I headed over to Dollar General to see what I could find in their home decor section…
I found (4) clocks, a lamp base, a lamp shade and a basket – all for under $30!
These 9 inch wall clocks are a steal at $4 each and perfect for a time zone display.
This lamp was another great deal from Dollar General! I spent $12 total on the the lamp base and the lamp shade.
Dollar General has lots of storage baskets in all sizes. This one was only $1. Seriously how could I say no?!
I’ve created a free printable of the time zones if you want to recreate my U.S. time zone clock display. I printed out mine on kraft colored paper.

I mounted my printable on foam board.
I used rubber cement to adhere the paper to the foam board.
And then I used an x-acto knife to cut out my time zone signs. And used Command Strips (also found at Dollar General) to hang the signs.
The boys love their updated space, and I love how inexpensive it was to the create it!I originally had the clocks running, but the ticking was too much for the boys at night. We ended up just leaving the clocks stationary… Go create something! Are you new to my blog? Go HERE to see my home tour and HERE to shop for items I use in our home.
