With a few readily available materials, we are going to show you how to give your phone a 'hand!' Ha, couldn't resist the pun! We are making a 'hand' stand for your phone. With this stand, your phone is always, 'handy!' (Promise, that's the last one!)
Take a look at the video or read on for the tutorial.
To make the stand, you'll need the Quikrete mix of your choice. We are using mortar mix, which we picked up in this cute, easy to manage 10 pound bag. Grab a bowl that you don't care about, a mixing stick or spoon, water, and a plastic glove. You'll also need to have some support materials at the ready to 'pose' your hand.
This next step is easier with a buddy. Have your helper hold the glove open as you put small amounts of the mix into the glove. Add a little and have the helper move it down into the fingers. It's important to be sure the fingers are full. Continue to fill until about 2 to 3 inches from the opening of the glove.
We used both of these concrete hand stands in the workshop to securely hold our phones. Even though they are practical, we love how whimsical they are!
