Pickled Head

Pickled Head

This is one of those totally gross Halloween Party props that are so easy to make.

What you need

Rubber Halloween Mask OR plastic baby
Large Jar
Food Coloring


Buy a Halloween mask or plastic baby and place it into a large jar or bottle. Halloween masks with realistic features work well as they look like a human head in the jar. Unless of course monsters are pickling other monsters then you could totally go for that Halloween look too.


Fill the container with water and some food colouring.  Either a few drops of green for slime or red for blood.

You can add a few tablespoons of milk for a more muddy look too.
