DIY Color Block Unique Wall Clock

The other day i picked up one of these wood clock faces at the craft store with no idea of what to do with it – so i just decided to paint half! i’d mention the functionality of having a clock nearby too — but who am i kidding, i’ll never look at it for the time.

DIY Color Block Unique Wall Clock – Step by step

Directions

  • Step 1: Sand your clock to get a smooth texture. then tape off half the wood with your painters tape and burnish it by smoothing with your nails.
  • Step 2: Using anything that has a round shape and is smaller than your clock, trace around the shape for a semi – circle (i used an old trash bin that was sized just right)
  • Step 3: Mix your paint with a bunch of water so it’s more of a wash rather than a thick layer of paint. i would have preferred my paint to look thinner than it does actually.
  • Step 4: paint the center and then carefully free hand around your circular shape. make sure you dont have much paint on the brush when you do the edges or it’ll bleed.
  • Step 5: once your paint is dry, slowly remove the tape and assemble your clock kit as instructed.
