DIY Wall Clock – From Cork Trivet And Clock Kit

You have probably noticed the copper trend is still going strong, but some other metallic tones are joining the game! This mixed metallics geometric clock project can be made in an afternoon and will make a great feature for any space.

What we need

– Corkboard Trivet – Metallic Spray paint in gold and copper – Primer – Painters Tape – Power Drill  – Clock kit

Let's make DIY Wall Clock


Using the painters tape, mark off the areas you do not wish to spray with your first colour. If you prefer, you can also paint your clock hands to compliment the color scheme of your room.

When spray painting, always make sure to do so in a well ventilated area (outside is best) and use dust sheets and boxes to contain any mess. Repeated light coats of spray paint are best rather than layering lots on in one go.


Once the first color is dry, remove your tape and mark off the areas you want to spray next.


Once your trivet is dry and all tape has been removed, use a power drill to make the hole for your clock mechanism. This clock has an off center pattern and the hole was made where the two colors join.


As all clock mechanisms are slightly different, follow the manufacturers instructions for installing. This one is a simple screw-in battery pack, with a washer, a nut and the hands for the front.


You can try experimenting with varying the number of coats of spray paint, to get a different effect for each section of your pattern.
