Level 20+ Combat with at least level 5 Defence is recommended.
Make your way to the Odd Old Man's hut just west of the limestone quarry, northeast of Varrock. Once there, talk to the Odd Old Man, who will instruct you to collect several bones and will tell you how to prepare them. Below is the list of the bones which you need to collect.
Note: The easiest way to reach Varrock is via the Varrock teleport spell. You can collect the bones in any order you choose. The locations and monsters listed below are only a suggestion. Some of the monsters may also be found in other locations and some of the bones may also be dropped by another similar monster.
Name Image Location Big frog leg Kill a Big frog in the Lumbridge Swamp cave. Goblin skull Kill a Goblin East of Lumbridge Castle. Ram skull Kill a Ram near Southeast Varrock Mine. Bear ribs Kill a Bear at Southeast Varrock mine. Unicorn bone Kill a Unicorn at Southeast Varrock mine. Giant rat bone Kill a Giant rat North of southeast Varrock mine. Monkey paw Kill a Monkey on Karamja, or Ardougne Zoo, whilst using telegrab to get the bone. Giant bat wing Kill a Giant bat South of Catherby, along the coast.
After you have all the bones, head to Draynor and speak to Fortunato. After you speak with him you will be able to purchase 8 jugs of vinegar.
Now use a Jug of vinegar with a pot. Repeat this 8 times and then add a bone to each pot of vinegar. Now you will have "Bone in Vinegar".
Head back to the Odd Old Man. Next to him you will find a pot-boiler. Add a log to the pot-boiler, add the "Bone in Vinegar", and then light it. Do this for all 8 pots of "Bone in Vinegar".
Talk to the Odd Old Man to finish the quest.
Congratulations! Quest Complete!

Once you have bones from all the items on your list, put them in pots of vinegar like before, put logs in the pot-boiler, add the "Bone in vinegar", and then light it.
When all of the bones are ready, give them to the Odd Old Man and you will get to choose either the bone sack or a helmet as a reward (your choice is not permanent, you can exchange one for another afterward).
Congratulations! Quest Complete!
The bone sack is used as a cape and gives you +4 to all defence bonuses. No, the sack won't mumble or carry your bones.
The bone helmet is a Ram skull helmet worn on your head that gives the Defence bonuses: Stab +19, Slash +21, Crush +16, Magic +0, and Range +19
If you happen to lose either one of these, the Odd Old Man will replace it for you.
