Pocky Wall Clock

So, I had a couple boxes of Pocky (japanese chocolate covered pretzel sticks).

I got a couple cheap wall clocks from the dollar store, and decided to get crafty <3

The picture of the final product shows that I didn't paint or hid the previous white face of the clock. I made 2 of these clocks, I painted the white area with black acrylic paint, but I forgot to take pictures, sorry.

Both clocks were sold for 2.5USD at a local Anime Convention :3

Instructions

  • How to make a recycled clock. Pocky Wall Clock - Step 1
    Step 1

    First you need an empty box of pocky <3 I took it apart with an exacto knife.

    I hope these images are self explanatory.

    This is a side view of the box.

    So this is the box after I took it apart by the glued sides.

    Step 3

    If you've eaten pocky before, you know that the front image of the box is cropped. I want the full shot of the pocky bunch, so I cut the top flap and removed the carton bump behind it (next picture)

    This is the cartoon bump I was taking about.

    Step 5

    These are the sides of the box that I want.

    In the center there's the front image with the cropped flap over it.

    Then to the sides of the front image, I put the sides of the box. now if you notice, I switched both sides because of that angle on the top of both cut outs. This is because my clock is round shaped, so this is the way it fits better.

    And then, I put the top and bottom cut outs of the box with the pocky logo on them to the extreme sides.

    If you are confused by this, just look at a normal pocky box and indentify the cut outs by yourself, it's a lot more easy than it sounds.

    Step 6

    I located the center of the box, and I made a hole big enough to fit the hands mechanism of the clock through it. (hole under the "C")

    My wall clock was big enough to fit all of my croppings into it, if your clock is smaller you'll have to measure and crop the box to the size of your clock's face.

    Step 7

    The final step is to take the clock apart. It's very easy, mine didn't have screws, I just had to twist the red edge around and remove it along with the glass. This step is different accodring to the type of clock you are using.

    I removed the hands jsut by tugging on them and arranged my box cuttings according to the shape of the clock's face.

    You can use a hot glue gun or any type of glue that's strong enough to hold cardboard cuttings in place.

    Put everything back into place and you'll get a nice pocky clock!

Hurray for Pocky! Good idea; its nice, simple and effective. And regarding reese52's comment about having pocky shaped hands, another idea would be to just get some pocky, layer it in varnish and glue them on. XD I'm not exactly re if it would work though...

2.50 USD as in US Dollars =) I'm from Mexico and my geeky american bf uses that kind of format for his own currency XD

And yeah you can go crazy with the idea! Sadly, it is nearly impossible for me to get fimo, the idea was to use things that I could recycle or get for super cheap. Though, adding weight to the hands might affect the weak mehcanism of the clock, I'd use some sort of paper or somethign super light weight instead of any sculping material. Thanks for commenting!!

What was the selling price? I see 2.5usd, do you mean $2.50 or is that a typo.

Great idea. It would actually be even better if the clock hands were shaped into the sticks. Maybe using fimo clay to form around the hands.
