DIY rainbow clock

The outdoor spaces need colorful decorations just as much as the rest of the house does. Now that it’s summer and we spend most of our time outdoor, it would be a great opportunity to start a DIY project and make something nice for your patio, deck or terrace. This is a colorful clock that you make by yourself. All you need is plant stand with a round shape and a design similar to this one and lots of paint.

You’ll need all the colors of the rainbow if you want to recreate this design but you can also come up with something different and opt for a different pattern and a different combination of colors. First remove the caster wheels from the bottom of the plant stand if there are any and then sand the whole piece. This step is necessary in order to remove the finish and make the paint adhere better to the surface of the future clock.

To make a color wheel similar to this one you’ll need to paint one section at a time and use tape to delimitate them. It will take a while to complete all the sections but they will look beautiful at the end. Since the clock is designed for outdoor use you can also add a glossy outdoor spray varnish for protection. Now it’s just a beautiful and colorful piece of wood. To turn it into an actual clock you would have to install the hands and gear box. You can take these from another clock that you no longer need or use. Hang it on a wall and it’s done.{found on mom}.
