Hi Eighteen25 readers! I'm Toni and you'll find me over at Design Dazzle, where I love to share inspiration for stylish kids rooms, kids parties, DIY and holiday awesomeness. I am so thrilled to be featured here at Eighteen25 with all the crazy talent! I love Halloween, and I think it's important to think outside the box when it comes to creating whimsical decorations for such a fun holiday.
I'm excited to share with you one of my latest creations, the Mummy Hand! Perfect to go on a mantle or to give as a gift, this fun DIY project is easy, inexpensive, and perfect for your Halloween decor.
Here's what you'll need:
- 2-3 cups of rice or beans or cotton balls (some type of cheap filler)
- 1 rubber band
- White cotton or muslin fabric, rip into strips about 18 inches long (about 10 - 12 strips )
- 1 rubber kitchen glove (dollar store find)
- Glue gun
- Any ribbon or embellishment you'd like to add to the finished product
Here are just a couple of steps to create your mummy hand:
- Fill your rubber glove with rice (or other filling) until your glove is completely filled. Tie off with a rubber band.
- Begin wrapping your glove by taking a strip of fabric and hot gluing it to the top and back of the finger.
- Wrap tightly down the finger.
- Do each finger and wrap the tail between the fingers. When you're done with the fingers, you can cut off any excess fabric tail and glue the last of the tail to the glove.
- Finish wrapping the hand, gluing the last piece of fabric to the glove.
- Decorate with ribbon or anything else you like (I added ribbon and plastic animals like the rat or sparkly spider's web), and voila! Place among your Halloween decor and enjoy!
Various embellishments give it different looks - spooky, cute, scary, etc.
