I don’t have a clock in my office. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. Oh sure, I have a clock on my computer, or on my phone. But an actual clock that I can see what time it is when I’m working on something? Nope. I decided it was time to change that with this cute DIY flower wall clock.
Yeah, I could have just bought any old clock. Or even a kitschy cool clock that would be awe-some in my office. I could have even put the base clocks up as-is, all plain like. HA! No I couldn’t have. Even I know that would never work.

- Rusch Clock from IKEA – If you don’t live by an IKEA, you can get these clocks on Amazon.
- Prima flowers – You’ll need 2 packages for this project.
- Glue Dots – Craft strength
- Americana Multi Surface Satin Acrylic Paint in Bittersweet
- DecoArt Metallic Lustre in Gold Rush
- Foam pain brush
- Soft cloth or paper towels
Take the plastic cover off the Rusch clock. Set to the side.
Put a few drops of the Americana Multi Surface paint on the face of the clock and spread it around. We want to give the clock a bit of an aged and distressed look. Let dry. This should just take a minute or two to dry.
Add a few drops of paint to the outside plastic of the clock, and spread it around. Add more paint as needed. Again, we want to give this DIY flower wall clock an aged or distressed look, not paint it completely brown.
Let the paint dry really well. This should take less than 5 minutes or so.
Now add a bit of Metallic Lustre gilding wax to your clock. Take a soft cloth or paper towel and dip a little bit out of the container. A small amount is more than enough. Spread it on your clock in a thin layer, and keep spreading until it’s not spreading any more. Repeat for the entire clock. Don’t forget to get the front plastic part. Set aside and let dry.
Once the whole DIY flower wall clock is done and dry, put the plastic cover back on. Now, hang your fabulous DIY flower wall clock where people will see it, and it will make you happy!
