  1. Design Your Clock:
    • Draw a circular shape on a piece of cardboard to serve as the base for your clock. This will be the “sun” shape.
  2. Cut Out the Sun Shape:
    • Use a craft knife or scissors to carefully cut along the outline of the sun shape.
  3. Create the Rays:
    • Cut out long, narrow strips of yellow and orange colored paper to represent the rays of the sun. You can make them in various lengths for a dynamic effect.
  4. Attach the Rays:
    • Glue the strips around the edge of the sun shape, evenly spacing them out. Ensure they are securely attached.
  5. Add Texture (Optional):
    • For added texture and depth, you can crinkle the ends of the rays slightly before attaching them.
  6. Create the Clock Face:
    • Cut a smaller circle from red colored paper to serve as the clock face. Ensure it fits within the center of the sun shape.
  7. Attach the Clock Face:
    • Glue the red circle onto the center of the sun shape. Make sure it is centered and secure.
  8. Mark the Hours:
    • Using a pencil or paint, mark the hours around the clock face. You can use traditional numbers or Roman numerals.
  9. Add Clock Hands:
    • Attach the clock hands according to the instructions provided with the clock mechanism. Ensure they move freely.
  10. Attach Hanging Mechanism:
    • Attach a piece of string, wire, or a hook to the back of the clock for hanging.
