Halloween is one of the most popular holidays of the year. It’s a time for spooky costumes, haunted houses and all things creepy! But what if your costume needs a little extra something? Fake intestines might be just what you need to make that Halloween costume stand out from the rest. After reading this article, you will have no problem creating fake intestines with basic household materials.

MYO Fake Intestines

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!

Here’s an example, however, they opted not to draw on the veins, which does take a bit of time. If you’re going to make them, draw the veins BEFORE you douse them in fake blood or the marker will bleed and look terrible.

  1. 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!!

      The trick would be to stretch the stockings as you stuff them, that will elongate the stocking making them look thinner!!! Good luck!!!

  2. 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.

    • Can you do a video showing the process cause mine, like the haunted house gal, turned out horrible, lol.

      We added one that used the same method, they just left out the veins, (which to me are the best part!), but super time consuming.
