Atomic Wall-Clock from the site: Splendid Spaces Materials
Clock Movement (see picture to right)
Numbers (use either clock numbers, foam numbers, make your own on the computer, or look in the teachers department for cool numbers)
6 Clear Plastic Ornaments (most craft stores carry these all year round near the wood section) *I used 2, 3 ornaments and 4, 2.25 ornaments because they come with two halves.
Clear Plastic Party Bowl
3-4, 8.5 x 11 Adhesive Foam Sheets OR Sturdy Cardboard *I used foam sheets because I liked the texture and because it comes with a sticky back then I can stick directly onto the wall.
Pictures to put inside clock Instructions
1. Take each plastic ornament and break off the hanger.
2. Using the ornaments as a pattern, draw around them onto the foam sheets or other material of your choice. Cut them out.
3. Cut out the desired pictures and lay them out on each circle along with the numbers till the desired look is achieved. *TIP: Thick letters that will pop off the circle look better then flat paper ones; I used foam letters. Also, for the pictures I went online to find sexy vintage pin-ups and cut them out so that they could wrap around numbers and such.
4. Glue numbers and pictures onto circles.
5. Using a glue gun, apply glue around the rim of the ornament. Press onto desired finish circle. Repeat step until all ornament circles are complete.
6. Place the party bowl face down onto the foam and draw around the bowl. Cut it out.
7. Place the party bowl right side up onto the foam and trace the part touching the foam. Cut it out.
8. Poke a hole through the center of the party bowl and the foam circle you cut out in step 7 so that the clock movements arm (the part the clock hands attach to) can fit through the layers.
9. Press the sticky side of the foam into the bowls base OR glue it to the bowls base.
10. Assemble clock movement as directed putting any batteries in it needs and etc., but DO NOT put on clock hands yet.
11. Fit the clock movement piece through the bowl and the foam and then assemble the hands as directed on the movements instructions.
12. Using the Glue Gun, apply glue around the rim of the bowl. Press onto the circle made in step 6.
13. Peel the paper off the adhesive side of each piece of foam on the ornaments and bowl and adhere to wall OR use 3MM wall tape to adhere in desired spot.
