I'm so completely proud of this.

I've wanted to make a Weasley clock for a while, ever since I found out you could buy the movie versions online.. but I didn't want to pay that much and I found them to be kind of ugly. So I made my own!

full view:


close-ups:





sorry the next is upside-down I forgot to flip the photo..




and a weird side-view to show how the hands stick off..


I made the flags, portraits, and location labels in Photoshop Elements 4.0 (if you've never used a version that crappy you have no idea what I went through) and I mod podged them to a clock I had got at Michael's for $10 and painted green. The hands were purchased at my good old family-owned craft store (the big ones didn't have them) for about $1.60 a pair. It's a bit hard to read the flags and see the portraits because of the glare but in real life it looks fine. So all in all I came in under what I would have paid for the official version and I think mine is cuter too. Smiley

Wow, very cool Smiley  I was thinking of doing something like that for my nephews for xmas, but never sat down to figure it out.  It looks well done, kudos to you!

I can't wait for spring to start scouring fleamarkets / yard sales again... I need clock parts!

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.
