I'll admit, he was a little intimidating to try. I wanted to figure out how to make him out of a real working clock. Living in a small town, I didn't have many options for this.
So I ran to my local Walmart and found this clock. It was in the housewares section with the other clocks. I wasn't too thrilled with how big the casing was on it, but the price was right in case this didn't work (less than $3.00). The clock is about 4 1/2 inches around so it's not very big.
It took a little work to figure out how to take it apart, but it is possible.
I used a little black paint to paint the hands of the clock to make it look a little more like Cogsworth.
I also used some brown spray paint and painted the big white outside on his head.
While that was drying, I designed up a face for Cogsworth. I couldn't get my clock hands off the clock, so I had to cut a slit up his face to fit it around the clock mechanism. Then, I glued it in place to keep it from interfering with the clock moving.
Cut out and score the front and back pieces.
Glue one side together, but not the other!
Using a 1 1/4 inch hole punch, cut out half of a circle at the top edge of sides to hold clock.
Lay the second side together and mark the center of where they meet on both pieces. Separate and use the mark to punch half hole. Then line them back up and glue together.
Now you have the base piece.
Cut out the arm pieces. Score in the center where the arms meet and along the edges of the triangles.
Fold and glue the triangles together. Glue onto Cogsworth's body in desired position
Cut out and score headpiece. Fold and glue on top of clock.
Place clock onto body and ENJOY!
