  1. 1

    Place your hand inside the glove to stretch the glove out. Remove your hand.

  2. 2

    Pour the flour into the latex glove. Fill the glove with flour until each finger, the thumb and the palm of the glove are filled.

  3. 3

    Fasten the rubber band around the opening of the glove. Make sure the opening is properly secured so the flour can't fall out.

  4. 4

    Put your new fake hand in a jar full of gelatin for a great Halloween prop. You can also leave it lying around and wait for satisfying results.

Tips and warnings

  • You can coat the hand in baby oil or vegetable oil to make a "dead man's hand."
  • Paint the hand to make it appear more realistic.
  • Be careful to keep the hand away from sharp objects to avoid puncturing the glove and releasing the flour.
