Some people are clock watchers. Now everyone can be the clock.

Other projects customize the face of the clock. This one customizes the hands of the clock.

It looks expensive, but is less than $5 dollars, and about 30 minutes per clock. Perfect for Christmas Gifts, birthday gifts, end of school year gifts or any other time.

Kids, especially those learning to tell time, always get excited about this project.



Step 1: Gather Materials

Much easier to glue picture to hands if you pull the hands off first.

Gets a bit creepy when both hands are facing the same way...

Very clever, well done!

I've got the perfect picture for this. It's my niece in almost the exact same pose , except her hand is sorta cocked so it really does look like she's pointing. Gonna hit the dollar store for a clock. Thanks for such an easy and fun idea!!
Es encantador tu proyecto, muy original y simpático, felicidades :)

Definitely a personalized clock for oneself or as a gift. I was also thinking if it would be motivational for men to be not late for work, to have their beautiful girlfriend's picture here?

Thanks so much for the idea! I was stuck for a Christmas gift idea, and this was brilliant. Trying to get a 10-month-old to pose with a finger in the air proved to be somewhat of a challenge, though. In the end it worked out and the gift was loved by all. Thanks again!!
Oh how fun! I love this idea. Thanks so much, I'll be linking.
Looks adorable!  What a clever idea!!!!  Thanks so much for sharing. Wowzers ;0) 10/10
I love it! A very creative gift. :D
