Materials Needed:

  • screwdriver
  • craft scissors
  • colored paper
  • paper punch
  • glue stick
  • spray mount
  • white poster board

Disassemble

Unscrew the back of the clock, and separate the clock mechanism, face, glass, and hands. Put everything but the face aside.

Cut

Cut a piece of white poster board into a circle the same size as the face. Poke a hole through the center of the poster board for the hands.

Punch Paper

Punch out circles from different color Post-it notes, avoiding the sticky part. Using a glue stick, adhere circles to the poster board where the numbers would go.

Add

Adhere the new face to the old one with spray mount. Replace the hands, glass, back, and clock mechanism.
