DI­REC­TIONS

In the cen­ter of the wooden plaque, drill a hole large enough to ac­com­mo­date the clock mech­a­nism.

Paint wood with 2-3 coats of paint, al­low­ing to dry be­tween coats. Paint the dots on the domi­noes, if de­sired. Af­ter paint has thor­oughly dried, ad­here an iron gear or other dec­o­ra­tive piece onto cen­ter of the cir­cle, if de­sired, us­ing wood glue. Press down firmly and al­low glue to set. With wood glue, at­tach domi­noes to gear, if us­ing, or to the wooden plaque. There are clock tem­plates on­line to help with align­ment. Place the 12 o’clock piece first, then the 6 o’clock, then 3, then 9 and so on un­til the face is filled in. At­tach pic­ture hook to the block of wood. Us­ing wood glue, ad­here wooden block to back of plaque in top cen­ter. Make sure to align block with 12 o’clock po­si­tion.

In­sert clock mech­a­nism through cen­ter hole of plaque. At­tach clock hands and wash­ers pro­vided in kit. In­sert bat­ter­ies, set the clock and hang on a wall.

Clock hands come in a va­ri­ety of col­ors, most of­ten black or gold. They can be spray­painted in any color scheme.
