A craft to scare! This Halloween light brings light into the darkness – and makes terribly well as a decoration for the zombie party
To craft the zombie hands you need:
- 1 roll of crepe
- Straw made of cardboard
- small scissors
- LED light or glow light
This is how the scary light is made:
Glue to the preparation 60 to 80 strips of crepe on the table edge of your crafting station. Choose different lengths between 5 and 15 cm.
Place the drinking straw over the wrist and palms as shown in the picture. Wrap the first strip of Pain Crepe around your forearm and drinking straw.
Attention : The adhesive side must face outwards like all other windings that are directly on the skin! Otherwise you can not release yourself afterwards from the horror hand!
Do not wrap too tight, otherwise it will be really uncomfortable for the zombie hand model …
Wrap additional strips of crepe as the first layer around the arm so that the straw is attached to the wrist. Remember: the sticky side belongs to the outside!
Stick a few longer strips – right, again with the sticky side outwards – diagonally between thumb and forefinger on palm and straw, like a bandage.
Continue winding until the palm and back are completely covered by crepe. The hand model forms a claw with his hand as if it wants to grab it. This position must be maintained until the end.
Wraps your thumb and the other fingers as well as possible with the crepe strips, also here – you guessed it! – with the adhesive side to the outside.
Repeat steps 2 to 5, but this time wrap the hand, thumb and finger with the adhesive side inwards until the hand is completely wrapped in the second layer. The hand model still makes the claw.
Lead the point of the scissors into the free end of the drinking straw. Cut the stalk with the crepe wrapping lengthwise. It serves as a guide to cutting and at the same time protects the skin from cuts.
Gradually loosens the hand from the crepe bandage. This is tedious and can take a while – but we did manage it. Small cracks do not do anything at all, they just stick over the rest of the stripes afterwards.
Pastes the longitudinal section with a matching strip of crepe. Then slip the horror glove over a compact LED light or take – for even more showers – a glowing green glow light and puts it in the hollow hand …
TIP : Make the scary hand best in pairs, so to speak, hand in hand. Alone it is really very fiddly. If you choose an adult hand model, the glowing claw gets bigger!
