Picture of zombie friend?
Who doesn't like friends? Okay, so zombies aren't the greatest of friends, but just look at that gentle soul behind those button eyes.

This project is very quick and a great way to put a use to those worn gloves or resurrect a lone glove.

Step 1: Materials.

Picture of Materials.
Gather your materials and prepare for the resurrection.

-A Glove
-Something to use as eyes
-Embroidery thread

Would the stretchy 'magic' gloves work for this? Or would they not be ideal? I'd like to make these for some of the kids at an orphanage near us. I'll have to buy the gloves, so if anyone has a link for some low-cost gloves that would work, I'd really appreciate it.

Great instructable!



sorry for late, like, really late, but this is a pretty good price.

They are SO cute! (in a dead zombie kinda way)
Thanks for the awesome idea! This was a fantastic way to spend my afternoon. I could only find a black glove in my closet so I decided to make a little Ninja Plushie. I'm really happy with the way it turned out, thanks for the great instructable!
I LOVE YOUR ZOMBIE FRIENDS!!  I have about 20 "left over" gloves from my preschool class...now that it is (almost) spring, I know just what to make with the gloves!  I'll send pics when I make some.  What a super fun and super quick idea.  Thank you!!

Good idea. Zombie sea creatures, the best of both worlds.

I had a go at making my own out of an old glove I found, over Halloween. However instead of cutting off the thumb, I instead left it and turned it inside out, so it created a sort of damaged eye socket for the small eye. The darken eyes, were done with permanent marker and a safety pin above the eye. Giving the little critter an overall menacing effect. Thanks for the creative idea for this project.

I thought you'd like to know, I showed this to a colleague in the Art & Tech department at school, she raved about it, and now a whole year-group do this as a project.
Poe-tate-o (author)  Kiteman6 years ago
That's awesome. Thanks for letting me know!
Hi, I continued on your zombie friends and made cyborg zombies. I have made an Instructable on them: cyborg zombies feeding on “dead” batteries

would yarn work for thread?

As long as the knit isn't too tight it should work.

I really love this little guy. He is so well conceived and executed. The look on his face is perfect. You even installed the correct emotions! I sent a link to my niece (but I'll probably make one too!)
