Sometimes,(OK all the time ),  my mind works in strange ways. After seeing the weekly challenge and the contest page and thinking to my self that I had no idea of what I could do,then a light came on,but no that was just my son passing through the living room on his way to the bathroom. So while I was no longer sitting in the dark I still had no ideas forming in my head. So I went on cruising the web forgetting all about making something, when in the back of my mine unrelated items started going out on dates with each other, living with each other,having babies, raising families and planning their summer vacations, and out of all of that came a Popsicle stick clock. where in I went out searching for Popsicle sticks at 9 pm at night realizing that I only had 3 day to get it done in and here it is.

Step 1: Supplies

  • Popsicle sticks
  • glue
  • hammer
  • finishing nails
  • graph paper(not shown)
  • pen/pencil (not shown)
  • guts from a clock
  • hot glue gun
  • scrap wood(not shown)
  • tape(not shown)
<p>So I made it guys!</p><p>It took me 420 sticks to make, and about 5 hours.</p><p>The clock set is from Hobby Lobby, along with a sticker clock face. I was able to do this freehand, so I didn't use the nails, scrap wood, or graph paper.</p>
The top is like making the basket
<p>That's my clock_A surprised gift for my gf. Thanks a lot. </p>
<p>Just change a little bit on the top :D </p>
<p>I'm gonig to try to adjust this to make a lamp - it's still not possible to find lamp instructions using popsicle sticks!</p>
Thank you for the hint to making a rounder object and keeping it straight. I would have never thought o using graft paper. that makes my ideas so much easier.
<p>Working on my clock now</p>

Nice job. You got my vote.
nice job dad! I wondered how and why you did the clock sitting on the shelf in the living room( and why we went out a 9 at night to get popsicle sticks).
reminds me of that one simpsons episode :)
This one is worthy of the clock challenge too (if you haven't already entered it). Nice work, that's a fun clock.
Thanks, it is in the clock challenge, the stick it challenge and the epilog challenge.
This is awesome! I really likethe base, but I like the top as well! Well done! Voted and rated! Where did u get those posicle sticks?!
