Halloween is coming up and we’re all thinking of what to dress up as. Why don’t we give you an idea? A werewolf! But buying a costume could be difficult and costly. To make your process easier, we’re going to tell you of a very simple way to make werewolf gloves in six simple steps at home! Interested? Read more to find out how they are made.
Products needed for this DIY project:
1. 12-inch PVC tube
3. Rotary blades
5. Black glove
6. Black crafty faux fur
Let’s get started with our DIY project!
Take a 12-inch-long PVC tube that has a diameter of half an inch. Draw a sort of an oval figure on the PVC pipe which is tapering at the top. Draw 10 of these shapes which will form the nails of the werewolf hands.
Using a drill with a rotary blade carefully cut these shapes. Make sure to do this in a well-ventilated area because a lot of dust tends to fly around during this process. Also wear essential safety equipment like gloves and eye glasses when dealing with sharp tools.
It’s okay if your shapes aren’t perfect because now it’s time to sand these nails. Using a sanding paper or sponge, vigorously sand the nail so that there are no rough edges and the surface of the nail is smooth. Make the nail tapering from the top and flat at the bottom.
Using some paint or markers, paint the nails brown on both sides. Using a dark brown and black colour paint, add some details into the grooves to make the nails look more realistic. Don’t forget to spray a coat of clear coat on the nails to lock the paint in.
Now it’s time to glue the nails on. Using some store-bought glue, stick the nails on the tips of the gloves in the part where the figures are to be inserted. Don’t be shy to use a generous amount of glue to firmly secure the nails in place so that they don’t fall out.
Using a hot glue gun, start adding some crate faux fur on the glove. Cut small strips for the finger part of the glove and put a large section on the bottom half. If you see any spaces of the glove that have been left untouched, cut small bits of the faux fur and stick them on the uncovered sections. Leave your glove aside to dry for a while.
Your werewolf hands are now ready! Wear this for your costume party or to your next cosplay convention and impress everyone around you with your one-of-a-kind werewolf gloves made with cost effective materials. Enjoy your latest creation!
