How to Make Intestines Prop

Introduction: How to Make Intestines Prop

Have you ever thought, "Hey I want to make it look like I'm eating mine/someone else's intestines without actually eating them"? Yeah, probably not. However, if you do this Instructable will show you how!

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

For this you will need a pair of pantyhose, paper towel, fake blood, scissors, a stick and a bucket. (You also at want to do this near a sink this gets pretty messy!) Most of this stuff is pretty cheap being only a few dollars or so. If the fake blood is too expensive you can always make your own. Check out the youtube video for a tutorial.

Step 2: Cut the Pantyhose

Cut the pantyhose at the top with the scissors so you have two legs with an opening on one end.

Step 3: Fill 'er Up!

Crumple the paper towel and stuff it into the pantyhose. (Don't use all of it you'll need some later) Keep it loose! Intestines aren't super bulky, so don't over stuff the pantyhose. Tie a knot to the open end then crumple and shape the pantyhose until it's to your liking. It doesn't matter if the pantyhose are pointy and stiff, the next step will fix that.

Step 4: Now It Gets Messy

Take the pantyhose and place it in the bucket. Use a bucket you don't mind dying red because fake blood stains pretty badly. Dump the desired amount of fake blood on the intestines and stir with a stick (You don't want this stuff on your hands) ensuring to cover the entirety of the pantyhose. The intestines should be soaked in blood at this point, using the stick, pick the up carefully and place them on a paper towel and leave them to dry.

Step 5: Adding the Realism

Voila you have intestines! Be sure to when you use them add a little bit more fake blood just to make it more realistic.

    Google "Andrew Mayne Gutbuster" -- video available on YouTube -- and work out how you can combine that with this prop for something even more horrid :)
