The Sunburst Clock

Sunburst style wall clock made of a fan’s protective wire case.


Sunburst d├ęcor items like mirrors, clocks or wall-arts are quite a trend since a long time, and till date they are very popular. The reason for their everlasting popularity could be their magnanimous shape & size; that a single of these sun-burst items can make a large empty wall look compellingly beautiful.

So for our very own sunburst inspired DIY, we got a brilliant take-away in the form of the outer protective case of a standing fan. It’s natural shape itself, with the central casing and circularly diverging wires provided the perfect sunburst-like effect.

To give a new finish we painted the metal case a shiny silver. And to the central potion we added some gold glitter to the silver paint. In order to make the clock form, we put 3-6-9-12 digits in gold all around the centre and screwed-in a clock unit at the mid-point.

With just these few basic steps, we created a bright-big-sunburst clock! The time for sure looks brighter now.
