I'm so excited about the adorable Nightmare Before Christmas Halloween decor that I made this year. They were fun crafts and pretty easy to make as well. I used a teal pumpkin because we participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project which if you aren't aware of is the way to show you are an allergy friendly house. This gives children with severe allergies a fun way to still participate in the Halloween fun without the fear of having an allergic reaction to any treats.
So I got a few things from the Halloween section from Oriental Trading like the Teal pumpkin, some fadeless black paper, and glow in the dark paint. I also picked up one of their treasure chest grab bags to hand out to the allergy friendly children.
I also picked up a white craft pumpkin and some paint to paint my pumpkins into Jack Skellington and Sally. With the teal pumpkin, I painted Sally's face onto it and used the red yarn for her hair. I also made a separate pumpkin to look like her dress because she is one of my all time Disney / Tim Burton characters. The white pumpkin I simply painted his face and stem white to look like a skeleton head.
I used the fadeless black paper in the window to create Oogie Boogie's silhouette in the window. I put a whiteboard behind it so that you can see it in this picture, but you can only see him really well if it is dark and there is a light behind him. It's a hint of hidden Halloween decor that makes it perfect with my Jack and Sally pumpkins.
I think next year I'll create a cute little Zero out of an old sheet. That will make this project just perfect. For now, I'll break out my Sally costume again this year at Walt Disney World.
I was provided with the supplies to make these cute crafts from Oriental Trading.
