Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1:

Supplies for my Mummy hands, Dollar store fake arms, metal wire, and cheese cloth.

I cut off the hand from the arm part.

Step 2:

With the metal wire twist into a shape of the hang to put inside after. This will let you pose the fingers. I also added a loop at the wrist locations for hanging purposes.

Step 3:

I wrapped the hands with cut up strips of cheese cloth that I had dipped in coffee and dried.

Step 4:

And done!!!

Step 5:

Mummy hands are now up on the wall with the others!! Yay!!! And a whole lot cheaper then the store ones!!
