For Christmas this year I built a unique and very cool little man that I call Mr. Clock Face. He's a simple wire man with a useful clock head and aligator clip hands. This Instructable shall explain how I built him.

Edit: My step mum absolutely loves him and gave me an extra heaping of ice cream for dessert, so I'm extremely happy with this, even if you're not. If you make this than be prepared for the thank you's from who ever you make it for (yourself?) because I certainly wasn't prepared for the lot that I got. Please, don't forget to comment and / or rate!

Step 1: The Sacrificial Gathering of Necessery Materials

To make this wonderful little resident for my step mum's bedside table, I used:


  • Pencil or Dowel with Similar Width to a Pencil
  • Drill
  • Drill Bits of Assorted Sizes
  • Super Glue
  • Pliers
  • Scissors


  • 20-30 meters of 1.25 mm Wire
  • An Average 4" x 2" Piece of Wooden Block
  • 2 x Alligator Clips
  • 1 x Small Round Clock
  • 1 x Tissue Box
  • 15 x Tissues
  • Wrapping paper
 A couple notes on the above items:

2.5 cm is 1 inch. (1")

My wire was just a 30 meter roll of tie wire.

A good friend of mine recommends that you don't glue your fingers together with the super glue.

My "Small Round Clock" is an analog alarm clock that's approximately 3-4 cm round and 2.5 cm deep.
That's pretty awesome looking, I want to make one! :D The name reminds me of the video &quot;<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skCV2L0c6K0" rel="nofollow">Drinking out of cups</a>&quot; probably because in that video it says something about Mr. Walkway..
My flash is currently down and out, so I can't see the video! Thanks for the comment though, I'll check it out tomorrow at school.
Fantastic. I love this thing.
Thank you! I loved making this and I'm really pleased at how he turned out.<br />
