Witch's Hands !

Colleen Sowa


We have been making these since I was a girl... My mother use to go all out for every holiday.... One year my daughter and I made 300 of these hands to give out for Trick or Treaters.... A fun project..... and something different to hand out.... We could hear children yelling out to others..."Go to that house! They have cool treats!"

*** You can also used already popped corn, Cheetos, Cheese balls, Fritos, etc... But popcorn is my favorite!

*** I use food service gloves (I get them at the deli department of my grocery store) or I use Powder Free surgical gloves.
