    Cheap & Easy To Make Prop Hands
    Hi all - I've made some cheap & easy hands for my halloween monster props! They are super simple and very cheap to make!
    I wrote an free how-to article and submitted it to a halloween site before I joined any forums: Have a look and let me know what you think.

    I found mine at a cheap dollar store called Dollarama - they are cheap little things so you probably won't find them in the higher end stores! Hope you can find some! Happy Haunting!!

    Cool! I made some hands, but i used romex wire. I simply cut the scrap romex up in finger length pieces plus 2 inches. Then i duck taped them to a 2 inch scrap piece of pvc pipe. Then used that foam in a can to make them look like a real hand. Took some smashing of the foam to look right, but it will work fine in the dark. I even made a pair of extended ones for me. Now i have 6 foot arms to greet the kids with...........

    Thanks! I've had this dilemma of lots of handless props.
