If you're planning a haunted house, Halloween party or simply want to up the creepy factor when decorating your home, you can make some very simple fake hands that look really scary. It only takes a few items to make them, and you can make them as scary as you like depending on what you need them for. Make fake hands that will give guests a double take when they are sitting down for dinner or rest them on the back of a chair.
Things You'll Need
- Thin latex gloves
- Rubber bands
- Red paint or artificial blood
- Artificial fingernails
- Fake fur
Insert your hands into a pair of latex gloves and stretch them out a little bit to get them ready for the sand.
Pour sand carefully into each glove until it conforms to the shape and size of a real hand.
Tie each glove shut with a rubber band so the sand won't leak out.
Decorate the hands as you desire. Drip fake blood or red paint onto the hands, stick on some artificial fingernails or glue on some fake fur to look like werewolf hands. Use your imagination and create your own creepy hands.
Place the hands where they will be seen and scare your Halloween guests.
Tips & Warnings
- Use glow in the dark nail polish to make creepy "fingernails" on your fake hands.
- Gloves filled with sand are heavy and could cause injuries if they hit or fall on someone. Make sure the fake hands are securely positioned to avoid falling. Always supervise children when present with fake hands and other potentially hazardous decorations.
