Planning a murder mystery night, putting the finishing touches on a vampire costume, or planning to scare your parents when they come home? There are plenty of great reasons to make a fake blood stain, and with a few household ingredients, you'll be making your own in no time. The following recipe makes about a cup of fake blood.

Things You'll Need

  • Mixing bowl
  • Measuring cups
  • Spoon measures
  • Corn syrup
  • Warm water
  • Corn starch
  • Red, green and yellow food coloring
  • Powdered cocoa
  • Sponge
  • Cloth, costume or carpet that will be stained with the fake blood

Mix 2/3 cup of corn syrup with 1/3 cup warm water. Add 5 tbsp. of corn starch.

Add 1 tbsp. of cocoa powder to the mixture, and stir until it dissolves. Squeeze about 4 tsp. of red food dye into the mix.

Darken the mixture using a few drips each of the yellow and green food dye so it takes on a darker, more convincing blood color.

Use the sponge to soak up some of the blood. Squeeze, drip or dab it onto the desired area to create a blood stain.

Tips & Warnings

  • This stain may not come out of clothing, so beware before applying it to carpeting or clothing that cannot be disposed of.
