Pickled Bits

Nothing says Happy Halloween quite like an unsettling display of putrefied-looking body parts neatly stuffed into jars. It’s a perfect way to begin the season. So gather up your boxes of Halloween decorations so we can engage in the fine art of extreme pickling.


  • assortment of glass jars
  • plastic Halloween decorations
  • cauliflower (optional)
  • food colouring


If you don’t already have these items, glass jars and Halloween decorations can easily be found in dollar stores. Things like skulls, bones, eyeballs and teeth are great for pickling. Cauliflower also works well for making little brains.

Use food colouring to prepare some brownish-looking water. Fill an assortment of jars with the items you have chosen, fill with the water, and close the lids. These pickled bits are bound to add an unsettling feel to the big night. You can place them on a tray near the candy, use mini jars to decorate a table, or display them in unexpected places throughout your house and wait for the screams.
