Shape your glove to your liking, let the concrete cure for 24 hours, and then cut off the latex with scissors or a utility knife.

BuzzFeed / Nifty Flip the middle finger inside the glove and fit a candle into it. Roll up the hand and let it dry flat. BuzzFeed / Nifty Remove the candle when the concrete begins to harden but before it completely cures—it heats up as it cures and could melt the candle wax. Tape down the four fingers to make an encouraging hook. BuzzFeed / Nifty Tape down the thumb, ring, and pinky fingers to create a jewelry hanger that is so ~zen~.
