WITCH HAND

Want to make a cute but creepy Halloween effect for your door? 
This is such an easy project and takes about 30 minutes.  
You need some cheap glue-on fake nails, a piece of heavy gauge wire or a coat hanger, an old shirt sleeve or a piece of fabric, some newspaper or plastic grocery bags, duct tape and a glove.  I used a green garden glove.
Stuff the glove with the paper or bags.  Glue on the nails and while that's drying, cut off a shirt sleeve.  Make a loop around both ends of the wire and then bend it at a 90 degree angle.  
Duct tape the cut off shirt sleeve around the base of the first loop.  Stuff the other looped end into the glove.  Hook one end on to the back side of a door handle and bend the wire so that it fits around the door to the front side.  There ya go!
I did this on a door and stuck a lollipop in the hand once.  An apple would be nice too!  Well, that's the beginning of my Halloween decorating, which tends to lean towards the creepy side, but what did you expect from a farm girl who runs a haunted maze every fall???

  3. That is seriously awesome! I think I'll adapt this for the kids, not behind a door but around the corner of the stairs to their room. Flickering light, otherwise darkness (oh sorry, the bulb must have blown out!) and then THIS. OH HELL YEAH!

  15. I have a black cat sort of Americana thing that sits on a wood swing seat and hangs in the guest bath. My grandson who is almost 5 won't us the "room" when that's in there so we have to turn it around or take it out. What do you suppose would happen if I put a witch hand on that door?
