I found a clock movement in my craft room the other day and had a great idea.  I'm going to make a "five o'clock somewhere" clock that I will probably give to my Dad for Christmas next year.  I'm going to put our hometown in the "5" place on the clock, and instead of numbers, each space around will have the name of another place where it would be 5:00 if he were there instead of home. 

Now, I have this great idea in my head, and I want to make sure that the execution is equal to the idea, but I've never made a clock before and I'm not sure what kind of materials and mediums to work with, so I was hoping for some suggestions.  I've dabbled in many things, and I'm pretty much open to any suggestion that doesn't require a huge monetary investment. 


I dare to love forever

I need to destash a ton of yarn and fabric.  Send me a PM if you'd like to do a personal swap for some.

I really want the (empty) glass skull bottle that Crystal Head vodka comes in, so PM me if you're willing to swap me one!

I have never done a clock myself, but I have seen them in the 'crafty housewares' section, so you might want to check there. Or do a search for 'weasley clock', I know a lot of folks have made those for Harry Potter swaps. Smiley
