Jack Skellington Paper Craft

My nephew is OBSESSED with all things Nightmare Before Christmas.

Now it seems like you can find Nightmare Before Christmas merchandise just about anywhere (especially around Halloween) but even a couple years ago, we could barely find anything – even at the Disney store or Walt Disney World!

My daughter and I spent hours on one Disney vacation trying to find something NBC-themed that was kid appropriate and finally tracked down some NBC figurines at the Christmas Shoppe at Disney Springs.

Last year, I decided to take measures into my own hands and make him some Nightmare Before Christmas crafts and these expressive Jack Skellington paper ornaments were such a hit! We call these “The Many Faces of Jack Skellington” – he is such an expressive little guy and we had so much fun trying to capture some of his famous facial expressions.

I turned our craft into a free printable template for you to grab and print off for a quick and easy movie night craft, but if you’d prefer, you can just print out the bowties and plain circles and try to draw his expressions yourself (or do a mix of both).

We always tend to add Mickey Ears to our Disney-themed ornaments (like our Toy Story Paper Ornaments or our Lady and the Tramp Ornaments), but you can leave those off if you’d prefer.

I also like to laminate paper decor items like this so we can use them multiple times. This is the laminator I use, and I just buy the super cheap packages of laminate sheets from Amazon. It costs about 13 cents a sheet to laminate which lets crafts like these last for a long time.

(I planned for my nephew to just decorate with the ornaments, but he turned one of them into a backpack charm to show off his NBC love at school, so the laminating definitely helped it last.)

How to Make Jack Skellington Paper Ornaments

Print and cut out your free printable template onto the black and white cardstock, as indicated on the template.

If you want your Jack Ears to be glittery, you can apply a light coating of glue to the black ear circles and sprinkle on fine black glitter. Allow glue to dry completely before assembling the ornaments.

Place the ears on the back of Jack’s head, about a finger width apart, so that the shape resembles a Mickey Head.

Attach the bat bowtie to the bottom of Jack’s face.

If desired, laminate the ornaments now before attaching the ribbon for hanging.

Cut a 3-4” length or ribbon or string, form into a loop and glue to the back of the ornament. Allow to dry completely before hanging.
