Look at the old ones. Most likely they are friction fit onto one of two or three co-centric tubes. If you can drill (or ream) holes exactly to those sizes, you can take the hands off and make some new ones. If you can't, you might be able to glue a different shape to the current one, but watch your clearances so one hand doesn't get stuck on another as they move. Easiest would be to buy new hands. Most of the places that sell clock works will have different sets of hands available.

Thanx, for the reply...just one more question though...if i stick another shape on top of the existing ones will it affect its accuracy?

Keep it light or balanced (equal weight on both sides of the hole) and you shouldn't have a problem.
