Paint your wood clock base from inside the kit.  I did a base coat of white on the entire surface and allowed to dry.  Then follow with your stencil and paint blue (or color of your choice).  Paint your numbers that come with the kit in this step as well.  Allow all of your components to dry completely before continuing.

The rim of this particular clock kit is just perfect for laying in buttons.  Layout your buttons and numbers until you are happy with the results.  Pick up each button and hot glue to the surface.  Once complete, use tacky glue to put your numbers into place.  Allow the glue to dry completely.
