The very important step in making a paper craft is choosing the right material for the craft. Right colors and the right paper are important aspects.

Materials Required:

  • Colored paper; red, blue, yellow, orange and violet
  • Black Sketch Pen
  • Scissors
  • Glue


✨ Step:1 Material And Drawing The Base

  • The first and foremost step is to layout the pastel sheet on the work table.
  • Use a pencil and a circular object to draw a circle. This is the base of the paper clock craft.
  • You can decide the size of the paper clock at this stage.

✨ Step:2 Cutting The Required Shape

  • Once you have drawn the circle of the required size on the pastel colored sheet of paper, take up a pair of scissors and cut along the pencil-drawn circle.
  • This is the base for your paper clock craft. Make sure you cut along the lines, strictly. The cut must be smooth.
  • If your kids are making the craft, give them paper scissors and observe them while they cut.

✨ Step:3 Adding Dots

  • Now comes the next step. Decide a smaller size of circles to add numbers.
  • Cut four circles of the same color. These will form the four number places in the paper clock craft.
  • All these places have to be at ninety degrees from each other.
  • Stick these bright colored circles in places on the edge of the paper clock craft.

✨ Step:4 Adding Circle For Numbers

  • Now we will be adding all the remaining number places for the clock.
  • Choose a smaller circle size for the rest of the numbers.
  • Cut eight circles of a smaller size as compared to the previous ones.
  • Now stick two of these circles in between the two of the previously stuck circles.
  • You have complete twelve circles on the clock.
  • Add two ear shapes on the top of the clock. This adds some fun to this paper clock craft.

✨ Step:5 Adding Details

  • Once you have added the base of the ears, add a smaller size of the darker or brown sheet of paper semicircle.
  • Also add the numbers to the clock. To add the numbers to the clock, use a black marker.
  • Fill in the numbers from one to twelve in the circles or bubbles already stuck on the clock craft.

✨ Step:6 Adding Clock Hands

  • Now only thing left is the hands of the clock. Use a bright-coloured paper to cut two thin strips for the hands of the clock.
  • The hour hand should be cut smaller than the minute hand.
  • Once you have cut the hands for the clock, stick them, stemming from the centre of the clock craft circle.
  • You can point them at any hour and use a glue stick to stick them in place.
