If you’re looking to scare your roommate on April Fools’ Day, there’s no better horror gag than Instructables editor Mikeasaurus’ “Head In A Jar Prank.” No, you don’t need an actual severed head for this one.

Check out how he did it after the break…
Here’s what Mikeasaurus had to say:
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.
