This is a super simple, easy, and innovative keyholder or decorative item made of plaster of paris.

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 packet of plaster of paris 0.5 kg
  • 1 disposable rubber glove
  • clothespin
  • water mug/ bucket


  1. Take the disposable rubber glove and stretch its opening nicely.
    Now in a mug or small bucket mix the plaster of paris. The ratio should be 2 parts of powder to 1 part of water. Add the powder to the water slowly and keep stirring continuously to prevent lump formation.

  3. Now slowly pour the PoP mixture into the glove. Make sure it goes in all the fingers and there are no obstructions.
  4. Make a knot at the top and now leave the filled glove to solidify. PoP normally takes 20-30 minutes to solidify. I hung the glove using a clothespin. Make sure the glove is hung straight and is not tilted (so that the base of the hand is horizontal).
  5. After it has dried and solidified, using scissors slowly cut away the rubber glove and voila! your hand is done! You can use it as a showpiece or as a keystand like I use it!
