I've gotten so many people who want to know how I made this bloody body rug (Who we've lovingly named "Matt") that was a big hit at the annual Halloween bash this year!

It's really easy. We got an large section of new carpet that was left over from a remodeling job, flipped it over, had a friend lay on it, in the desired position, and I outlined him with a black marker.

You'll need an exacto knife to cut it out, (Be extra careful, it can be really tough!) and trim off the edges with scissors and duct tape. (This will keep the edges from fraying)

Then flip "Matt" over and add a blood stain with red acrylic paint. Let dry and you've got a fun centerpiece for your Halloween decorations this year! I promise, your guests will stop dead in their tracks!
