How to Make a Patterned Wall Clock

Now that we all have phones that do 498 things in addition to telling the time, I rarely see clocks in homes anymore. But I LOVE clocks. Not only do they make it easy to assess the time at a quick glance, but they serve as objects that are decorative AND functional. Today, we're sharing a simple way to make and decorate a wall clock!

How to Make a Patterned Wall Clock

Here's how:

1. Spray paint your clock base white (or other color if you want a different background color). 

2. Now here's the fun part...coming up with your design! Cut out paper in various colors and shapes. You can go more loose and organic like the first photo or more structured and geometric like our bottom photo.

3. Use Mod Podge to glue pieces onto the clock base and then paint a coat of Mod Podge over the entire face once all pieces are glued on. This seals the pieces onto the base.

4. Let dry overnight.

5. Once dry, add clock hands and voila!

Hang or place the clock in an area that needs a pop of color. The cool part about making your own is you can customize the colors and patterns to fit your space exactly how you want it!
