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!
