I have a thing for clocks, which is funny because I’m always late.  Always.  Maybe I subconsciously think that if I have enough clocks around I’ll be on time for a change.  Ha!  I saw this wall clock on Pinterest, and loved the eclectic mix of colors and funky numbers.  Thanks to stencils and new paint products from DecoArt, I was able to recreate my own version.  Here’s how you can, too!


DecoArt has an awesome new line of Americana Multi-Surface Paints.  This product can be used on any surface, indoor or outdoor.  Yes, any surface, including glass, metal, fabric, and wood.


This innovation will make it so easy to color coordinate all your projects!  While I love the versatility of this paint, the other thing I love is the range of colors available.  Often, craft paints come in bright colors or are too flat in appearance.  This beautiful line offers a satin finish and colors I love to use in my home decorating.  I was drawn to the jewel tones for this clock project.

Supplies Used:

  • Americana Stencils:  Busy Bee and Timeless Treasures
  • Multi-Surface Satin Craft Paints:  Brown Sugar (base), Muted Gold, Eggplant, Paprika, Coffee Bean, Dark Scarlet, Muted Gold, Night Sky, Steel Grey, Black File, White Birch
  • Foam Pouncer
  • Glass Texture Paste
  • Clock Set
  • Wood Art Panel
Step one:  Paint the wood panel with Multi-Surface Paint in Brown Sugar.  Allow it to dry.

Step two:  Tape the “Busy Bee” stencil to the panel.  Use a foam pouncer to apply each color.  Remove the stencil.  Repeat as needed to fill the entire panel.


Step three:  Mix the Glass Texture Paste with Black File Satin Paint to tint it.  Use the “Timeless Treasures” Stencil to add the numbers 12, 3, 6, and 9.  Let it dry.

Step four:  Mix the same texture paste with White Birch Paint.  Use the same stencil to add the other numbers.


Step five:  Use Black File Satin Paint on the clock hands and pieces.

Step five:  Drill a hole into the center of the panel, and assemble the clock as directed on the package instructions.


Your clock is now ready to be displayed!  You can use colors that coordinate with your decor so that your new clock fits right in.

Americana Multi-Surface Paints are available for purchase at Michael’s, A.C. Moore, Hobby Lobby, and other fine craft retailers.

Right now, DecoArt is offering a rebate on this product:


Have fun crafting and creating!
