• MYO Fake Intestines

    Fake Intestine Halloween Prop Find an old pair of natural color or sheer white/gray pantyhose and trim the "feet" off. Carefully fill the hose with cotton or cut up cloth (old bed sheets work well for this). If you want to give a really nasty view, add shells or other "sharp" looking objects. Using a hot glue gun seal the ends. Draw "Veins" with a red marker

    Randomly twist your intestines and stitch them in various places to make them appear more realistic. Spray them thoroughly with clear varnish & let them dry. This will give them a nice glossy sheen.

    Place some Fake Blood in a small spritz bottle, and spritz in several areas to give them that freshly gutted look. Hang them from a torn shirt, or let them hang out over the top of your pants as though you had surgery that the doctor didn't bother to complete!

      Help!! I am trying to make this for a haunted house, and as it's the most realist looking fake intestines out there, I am determined to get this! But I'm having extreme difficulty. I have tried gray, sheer, nude, tights, pantyhose, stocking, etc. and they are all too wide (even children's). I have also tried on the inside cut up bed sheets, cotton, felt, rocks, shells, and it looks terrible! It looks like a pillow intestine! None of the twists are staying, and the sewing just looks bad. What am I doing wrong? Thank you for any help!!

      Use dark red thread in various spots to sew "twists" into the intestines- after you've overstretched the nylons. The red won't stick out after you add the "veins".
      The kids literally played tug of war with them before we used them. It takes a little while to get the hang of it, but you'll get it.

    Clever and nutricious. Can even be baked in your slow-cooker so everyone can join in the fun.
