Fake blood can be the perfect addition to a haunted house, Halloween costume or Halloween decorating. There's no need to try and find fake blood in a Halloween shop; you probably have most of the ingredients to make your own in your kitchen cabinets! Add a squeeze of liquid dish soap to your fake blood for easier cleanup later, and keep in mind that fake blood can stain.
