Welcome all you goblins and gals! Halloween is around the corner!! As we get closer and closer to Halloween, I want to make sure you gather all your props and costumes to assure that this year's Halloween is going to be hair-raising! As everyone around the world get ready for this global holiday, we all can't wait until we all reveal all our HORRIFIC ideas and creativity when it comes to Halloween. Today, I will be showing you how to make this SUPER SIMPLE but EFFECTIVE Mad Lab Jar of Human Heart Prop. This can definitely be a wonderful addition to your haunted house attractions!! Remember, be safe and HAVE FUN! Most importantly, the more blood, the better!!
Step 1: Materials
- Plastic Gallon Jar (Gallon jar works best because it's big. However, if you can't find a gallon jar, any jar works fine, just make sure your fake body organ can fit inside.)
- Any rubber body organs. (I used a heart. You can use almost anything, such as eyeballs etc. This was bought at the DOLLAR TREE.)
- RED spray paint
- Latex Gloves
- First alert puck light (I bought a pack of three at WALGREENS, you can also find puck lights at the dollar store.)
(As you see, I already spray painted my jar, if you follow up on the next step, I will show you how it's done.)
Step 2: Working on the jar
Now that you have a plastic jar or any jar of any sort, you want to take your RED spray paint. FIRST of all, put on your latex gloves. Start spraying random blood globs on the jar. Take your hands and smear some of the paint everywhere. Make sure you do not cover the whole jar with red paint, you also want to make sure you can still see through it when the rubber body organ is in tact.
Step 3: LIGHTING!
Now that the jar has finished drying off, make sure the spray paint on the jar is dry to the touch. If not, give it some more minutes to dry. For this step, we are going to work on lighting. Of course, it has to have lights, it's going to be dark and we want everyone to see it. First of all, unscrew the lid. On the bottom of the lid is where you want to attach your lighting source. For my lighting source, I used a FIRST ALERT puck light that is sold is WALGREENS in a pack of three. The ones that I bought has a sticky adhesive on the the bottom of the light. So all you need to do is peel away the paper back of the tape on the light and STICK it to the bottom of the jar lid. If your puck light does not have a sticky adhesive, simply use a hot-glue gun and glue it onto the bottom of the jar lid.
Step 4: Fill er' UP!!
Now at this point, you want to fill up the jar 3/4 of the way with water. Make sure you do not completely fill it up, it might mess up the light under the lid.
Step 5: Adding the Heart/Organ
Now you want to add in the HEART/ORGAN. By doing this, some of the rubber heart/organ has a hole inside. You want to fill that hole up with water so that it can submerse under the water.
Step 6: You're DONE!!
At this point, you are basically DONE!! Drop the HEART/ORGAN in, turn on the light source, and screw on the LID!!
