I was looking for a clock for our guest room with a pending visit over the weekend. I was heading to Ikea that afternoon anyway and hoped to find something that would work (and be cheap as well). And the best thing I love about Ikea is the fact that you get a blank canvas to show off your creativity. Here is what I came up with

How to do the Ikea Skoj Wall clock Hack –

Step 1 –  I dismantled the needles from the front and spray painted them with oil rubbed bronze because silver needles would really not stand out in front of the red background.

Step 2 – Cut the scrap book paper to size of the clock. Trace the circle for the clock movement and cut it out a about 0.5″ smaller.

Step 3 – Make little slits around the clock movement to help fit the scrap book paper onto the clock back. The little grey circle painted on  the clock helps forgive any errors in the cuts.Ikea Skoj Wall clock hack - back side of the clock

Step 4 – Once the paper cut to size and fit, coat the back of the clock with mod podge and carefully lay the paper, smoothing out any bubbles with a credit card edge.

Step 5 – Once everything is dry, assemble the needles back on and voila!! A beautiful new clock to match your decor!

    1. Thanks Toni!! I am not so sure about the changeout though… because the paper is glued on… I will try to see if that works..

  1. I love the new look! So soft and pretty! Great transformation.

    1. Thanks Sam.

  2. What a great idea. Its a beautiful transformation and seems easy to do as well.

  3. This is really pretty I love the softness of it now.

  4. This looks very pretty and I love the transformation using decorative paper! You mentioned removing and painting the needles and I’m thinking just the clock hands but are the lines representing the numbers painted on or what? You didn’t mention covering or removing them.

    1. Hi Gail, The numbers were already printed on the clock. The paper just went behind it. I am glad you liked the clock 🙂
