My 12yr old daughter is nuts about the Angry Birds game and the merchandise is a bit over my budget so i wanted to make her something and with my husbands help with a saw! (so its a joint effort from Missdolly and Mrdolly  Grin  )









I only finished the roof painting this morning so it still looks a little 'tacky' and needs another coat yet and then varnish, the back of the clock is uncovered as i downloaded a 'cuckoo' sounds app for her ipod touch which cuckoos on the hour haha and hopefully gets her up for school !!
The Angry birds are made out of fimo which i'd never used before and my first lot of birds burnt and stuck solid to my baking tray (stoopid me)
The clock was a cheap clock i took apart so i could use the mechanisms and its fully working!

We loved doing this little project and daughter has seen it and loves it so we are pleased  Grin

That's really cute. Way better than the Angry Birds stuff I've seen.

Thank you it was easy enough to do although my painting skills could have been better. I took step by step pictures i didn't want to bore people with them. My mum has a cuckoo clock daughter and love but MAN!! have you seen the prices of a cuckoo clock these days!!
