I bought a cheap 4$ clock from walmart and tore it apart and revamped Wink  It was really difficult to get apart and I was afraid I'd break the clock in half!  I ended up breaking the second hand in the process.  The clock actually works though!  Made it for my twin sister for her bday present Cheesy

I love it. Normally I hate clocks, but now I wanna make one too. Am I seeing correctly, the girl has no head?

thanks guys!

olga -- yes you're correct -- the girl has no head! She is sporting a double birdhead however!

handxhand -- hello fellow lj'er! Smiley

shortestkitty -- I had to pry off the back and then a second back with a screwdriver.  I figured if the little tabs that hold it together (keep in mind this is a very cheaply made clock!) broke off I would just glue the clock together.  After that was all taken apart I had to carefully take the clock arms off (don't use much force! that's how i broke off the second hand!). 

xo!
