Yeah, it not that hard, but it does take some time and creativity. If you have an idea of your own, send us your videos!

Shopping list

1. Two loaves of cheap white bread.
(The softer the better. You might get away with one, but at $2 a loaf get a back-up.)

2. A big bottle of school glue or wood glue.
(I ended up using both, they are very similar)

3. A bunch of old newspaper.

4. Some masking tape.
(Duct tape would be too slippery on the back.)

5. A cheap paint brush or two.
(These are going to get filled with glue, so get the cheapest ones you can find.)

6. Some "brain colored" paint.
(I grabbed a tube of arylic "flesh" and "red" from my roommates paint set...FREE...until he finds out)

Step 1: The Base

Ok, so you don't want to build a fake brain completely out of bread. It takes way too much bread and doesn't work, believe me I tried it. So we need a cheap and simple base that we can apply our cool looking bread brains to. Start making a ball of wadded up newspaper, using the masking tape to keep it tight as you go. I made one big ball, then a smaller one and taped those together. Just keep adding tape and paper until you get the basic oblong shape of a brain.
brains are actually a very light creamy color, untill they sit for a few days....then their a light gray. trust me, my grandpa hunted alot, and I've seen deer brain.
aside from that small error, thsi is very cool.
<p>What Error This Is Great</p>
i think its wrong to waste food...
Flour and water make a pretty strong glue. I met you could make an edible version with that as glue, and food coloring instead of paint. Then your zombie could eat the brains!
Nice instructable!&nbsp;Go indymogul!!!!! You rock!!!!!<br />
I once created a brain decoration on my friend's cake and he really liked it.
if you wanted to, you could just make a kind of structure out of expanding foam.
i know how to make it work! just add a PIC!!!!! he he he
very nice. maybe you could use the bread brain to make a mold for a jello brain? that way you could eat it.
that would be sweet for a halloween party.
I made a jello Brain and ate it!!!!!
about the last part with the ..brain....ball, i have have a one used just for brainball. its by nickolodean
I'm diggin the video with the shorter intros, transitions etc. :)
I love it, BRAIIINSSSSSSS.... I would try a starch-based glue, like flour and water, with egg whites... just a teensy bit more edible, brains should be good for eating. ;)
very, very, very well done! zupHC
second, also you can eat the first two you can't eat the bread one.
