Thanks everyone for all the nice comments! Cheesy

OOOH, now i want to dismantle a clock to make it into dumbledore's....or maybea weasley clock...hmmm.

I've never made a clock before though. Any advice?

I found this project REALLY easy. I don't know if all clocks are made like mine was, but I just had to pop out the clear cover for the face using a screwdriver, and after that, all the other pieces (hands, movement, face) could just be taken off by hand.
My advice would mainly just be to take a good look at the clock before you buy it to get a feel for what you'll have to do.


Thanks.  Basically, if i'm just adding hands (For the weasleys), I don't really have to do anything to the clock itself, right?  I can just make fake hands and glue them down onto the face?

Yup, that's exactly what I did.

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!
