Wanna make one? Check out thrift shops for used clocks, or discount stores. They're not too hard to come by. The face usually comes off pretty easily. Then just pull the hands off (careful not to bend them) which should free them from the clock guts (in the back). You might want to look at the hands before you take them off- makes it a little easier to put them back. Make a new background, put it all back together, and pat yourself on the back.
Ideas for backings/ themes....
You can use pictures (wedding, baby, house, favorite place, quilt, newspaper, magazine page), you can type or stamp phrases, have people sign or autograph it, make holiday themes, hobby themes, sports players for fans, food for a kitchen,.... you get the idea.
