Yesterday, later in the afternoon, I had this idea of a hand coming out of a wall that could be used to hold keys, jewelry or whatever you want.
I thought this would have been perfect for the Zombie Contest but I realized that there was only one day left to enter!
For some unknown reasons, ideas come to my mind late (or too late) most of the times...
So I started to do everything as fast as I could and I finally ended it tonight! *whew*

The problem is that the light is not good at this time, so I couldn't take a good picture of it hanging on the wall.
I am going to take a better picture tomorrow and add it here...I hope you'll enjoy this project in the meantime! :)

...and please vote if you like it! :D

Step 1: What you need

  • newspaper
  • acrylic paints
  • white glue
  • hot glue
  • cardboard
  • white sheet of paper
  • toilet paper (yes, seriously)
  • scotch tape

Step 2: The Hand

The first thing you have to do, is creating your hand's structure with newspaper.

Take a sheet from a newspaper and crumple it up creating an oval shape.

Look at the central part of your hand (the part with no fingers): you'll notice that one of the edges is taller than the other, so try to make a shape that looks as similar to your hand as you can.
As you do this, secure with scotch tape to make sure that the paper keeps the right shape.

Step 3: Fingers

Now let's make the fingers.

Tear off half newspaper page and create a paper sausage with it.
This will be the thumb of the hand, so compare it to the previous part to keep the right proportions.
Attach it to one side of the oval part using scotch tape.

You have to make other 4 fingers now so create 4 more paper sausages and attach them to the top of the oval to obtain a...hand!
Remember that some fingers are shorter than others so try to always keep the right proportions.

Bend the fingers on the inside a little.

Thank you Tarun! You are right, I will add some blood :D Right now I am going crazy trying to take a good picture of it but it's so much harder than I thought...I think I will keep these pictures!
I know how it feels, today when I published my ible, I went crazy because instructable went down for few minutes and the jewelry contest was about to close by then.
lindarose92 (author)  Tarun Upadhyaya1 year ago
Exactly! I was wondering if they will accept entries for these contests that ended yesterday...I published this one before the closing date but it hasn't been accepted yet and the contest has been closed...
Yes! We always check first thing Tuesday morning for entries that were in last minute. That's what I'm doing now.

Just takes a while because everyone seems to enter the night before it closes! :P
Thank you so much Jessy, you are doing a great job out there, really appreciate.
