Wednesday’s Wink … { meet Franken-HAND }

I usually post DIYs on our Monday’s Make-it column, but hey it’s Halloween today and I just HAD to share this quick DIY in case YOU want a helpful hand to give out candy! Thanks to the creative brilliance of Jonathan Fong (thanks again for the instructions!!!) I was able to bring to life this Franken-hand helper within …… less than 10 minutes!

It took me LONGER to find a glove (hubby’s glove volunteered to be experimented on!). Surgeon tools:

1) tissue gift paper (or paper towels as Jonathon Fong used)
2) aluminum foil (that’s the secret “ingredient”)
3) gloves (thank hubby!)
4) note (to put Franken-hand to work, I used Microsoft Word for text)

So form aluminum into finger forms and shove into glove ….

Feed (fatten up Frankie) with tissue …
Then simply move the fingers to hold the sign / note …


I interrupt this post to confess …… there are NO MORE tootsie rolls to give to kids today! Franken-hand (or eeer, “i” ) ate them … all 50 of them!

Ok, now back to the regular post: I also added witches boots/socks to our side table. I chose a low table so the little kiddies can reach the candy …. err, if there are ANY left when they get here.

Oh, here’s my costume for today (see below) - no, not the earrings . . . . but the looooong eye lashes. They would had been longer, if the other set wasn’t sacrificed to Miss Cyclopes Vampire pumpkin. Look at Franken-hand being so helpful (I may have to pay him to hand out candy!). Maybe next Halloween I will find another glove … a more ‘creepier’ one and mold it like claws!!! Muahahahaha. Happy Halloween!

    Those lashes are fabulous and this diy is awesome.
    Did you have many trick or treaters in light of the hurricane? I really feel like Halloween has been stifled for the second year in a row in these parts.

      The damaged trees were clipped + set aside from paths. It was already 6pm-ish and no trick or treaters had knocked so I thought they we wouldn’t have any .. then the adorable little monsters + princesses came after 7 (some practically ran me over … too cute!). I almost ran out of candy - for the 2nd time, since I was already low the day before from someone (me!!) eating the treats. THANK goodness Rite-Aid was open in the morn so I could buy more candy for me .. er, kids :) . Kids around here r tough cookies (my kind of crowd … no one stops us from getting CANDY), my hood hasn’t had any heat for several days now and that didn’t stop them :) The parents looked sooo cold! Next year u will have soooo many kids stopping by on Halloween to make up for these past 2 years.

        Glad to hear there was no holding back those trick or treaters. I hope you have heating back now. The no heat finally drove us out last night.

        Yikes, sorry to hear that the no heat drove u out of your home (hope it comes back soon!!!). wishing you safety and warmth.

    This is actually such a great project for Halloween. It is easy to make and I’m sure the trick or treaters will love this genius trick.
