Thanks for all your feedback.. I used E6000 My favorite glue .I on the saucer there is a blue line that i line up the 12:00 bean but I also was thinking of painting that one silver or gold ..some other thing I have thought of was sticking a spoon in the cup. and adding a gloss coat to make it more liquid looking ..and if you have a Asian theme doing a rice bowl .....gluing rice to the foam core but not sure what to use for the numbers ... I think fake sushi on the plate wold be cute maybey Little fimo shrimp and chop sticks for the 12..

Oh! clever idea and well executed!
Can you change the battery? I assume the clock mechanism is battery operated. Can you get to the battery behind the coffee-face?

I don't think you even really need anything to denote the hours. Clearly 12:00 is at the top and everything else can be judged by eye. For instance, my brother made me a vinyl record clock and there are no numbers and it works fine.

I think it would be fun to do your asian themed rice bowl and use chop sticks for clock hands!

The foam core pops out I forgot to mention if anyone plans to hang on a wall I used a little hot glue just a dot after it cools its just enough to hold it in place . I even have kept money behind it . chopstick hands are are a great Idea I'm not sure
about the clearance I think one might have to make your own ..or split the sticks

That's is FAB-U-LOUS!  I now have to find a a cup and saucer because I am going to make one of these for the break room at work.  Yes, there's no clock...in a break room.  And I need one for my house too. 

Thinking about hanging it and the face staying on but still easily removed...how about glueing a block of wood inside and sticking the face in place to the wood with some velcro?  Other ideas?

What are you thinking to use for a hanger on the back? 

How about gluing the spoon on the saucer and and some sugar cubes too? LOL for work I'm thinking and cleaning out one of the little creamer cups and gluing that in place along with a plastic spoon.  Maybe an empty sugar packet.  Very breakroom.

Hope you post yours Id love to see them when your finished .I found that it stays put with the hot glue I also used a small piece of rubber band that worked fine .as far as hanging it they sell plate holders for collector plates all over  they have them at the dollar stores sometimes or you can use E 6000 and glue a pop can tab to the back

That's fantastic.  I want to make one now.  It's Alice-in-Wonderland-esque.  Ha.  I made a word.
