This DIY Thing Halloween prop tutorial shows how to make Thing, based on the original Addams Family TV show, using everyday items found around home. For the first Thing, the stuffing came from a cushion that my dog attacked, the glove was an old dress up glove and the box was found as part of a clean up day.
I forgot to mention that the flat end of the skewer should go about half way into the finger of the glove.
A thick piece of foam wedged into the box would be ideal for holding up the glove (if it is available).
For a more realistic look, the stuffing needs to be flattened out more on the back of the hand.
Happy Halloween and happy crafting!
