So I'm a bit of a Harry Potter nerd (along with a large part of my family). For Christmas this past year I made a Weasley Clock for my aunt/uncle/cousins.  I was very proud of it!  It actually tells the correct time but it has a hand for each family member as well.


The only thing I wish I had done differently is the color of the paper I used on the photos.  I think sepia tones would have been prettier.

I love how the little one is in prison - ha!  Cheesy I like the parchment color. Nice work, I am sure they loved it.

You did a great job.....and you should be so proud that it does tell time. I would think that's hard to do with all those hands.

Love this! I really should make one of these for my family. I agree that the sepia tones in the pictures would have tied in nicely. Still looks great though!

Aw, thanks guys Smiley I'm glad you all like it!

Tips for those who want to make one...well I did the photo frames in photoshop and printed it on cardstock and glued it onto the hands.  It was the only thing light enough!  That's about it really, the way I did the hands was pretty janky so I don't think I would recommend that way! Cheesy
