This is a simple project that can easily be done in the course of watching a movie, aka, not too much thought.
Step 1: Objects to gather.
- Paint (black and red is what I used, you can use whatever you like)
- Craft Knife
- Glue (hot, elmers, and super will all work)
- Basic tools (pliers usually get the job done)
- Packaging Tape
- Coathanger (for a stand)
Step 2: Open it up.
Remove the hands and set them aside.
Remove any paper bits from the front as well. We won't be needing these anymore.
If there is an excess metal piece (for support), remove that as well.
Step 3: Create the gear.
Print out the pdf, and cover it in packaging tape to stiffen it. Then cut it out with a craft knife and paint it whatever color suits your needs. I chose black.
Cut the hour hand from your clock and glue it to the back, so it is pointing upward. Don't forget to paint the back!
