To make a wall clock, trace the round piece of wood onto the back of the wrapping paper with the pencil and cut out the circle. Next, glue the wrapping paper onto the piece of wood and allow it to fully dry. Then, attach the clock movement mechanism carefully. Assemble the clock assembly kit by following the included instructions. If you do not like the colors of the hands that are included in your purchased kit, use the spray paint and paint the hands to match the wrapping paper. If you are using numbers, evenly space out the appropriate numbers and carefully glue them onto the front of the wrapping paper. Use the hanger and attach the back of the clock and then hang the clock on the wall.
