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

  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. 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. 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.

  5. Tip

    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.
