Instructables editor Mikeasaurus came up with an awesome Head In A Jar Prank that’s perfect for April Fools’ Day, Halloween or, you know, just to liven things up in your kitchen or breakroom.
All you need is photo editing software, a large jar, food coloring, a printer and access to lamination services (such as your local print/copy shop.)
Using a photo editor, two pictures are blended together to create flat image of a head, which is then laminated and submerged in a jar. When the flattened image in inserted into the curved jar, along with the distortion from the water, gives the illusion of a decapitated head in a jar of preserving fluid.
