Use spray adhesive glue ( do not put too much on because you want to be able to take this off after if you put too much on wait a bit for some of it to dray and attach to the round piece of wood).

there should be some way to make the hour light up only.
Blechmen (author)  nick91102 years ago
Yup I have a way and if you want me to make it just ask what I could do is add a flat piece of tin cut a hole in it and have it move with the time movement. so that the hour is the only one moving. Don't forget to vote I put lots of hard work into this.

I like the idea, but i think there should be light up hands too somehow.

Yea i am going to paint glow inm the dark pint on them so you can see them.

That is pretty cool. nice idea. ... do you have to worry about the light behind the clock getting too hot?
Blechmen (author)  zomfibame2 years ago
I am also thinking of putting glow in the dark paint on the hands so you can see them too.

No you could use LED or CFL light bulb
