Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Jack Skellington Halloween Tree

Jack Skellington Halloween Tree

I bought this tree a few years back with the intentions of finding some really cool ornaments for it. After browsing online and at our local stores, I came to to conclusion that the Halloween ornaments that are currently sold suck! I really wanted some cool Nightmare Before Christmas ornaments, and the ones that I found were awesome, but they were just too big for my little tree.

So, I decided to make my own. I bought some small white bulbs from the Christmas section at Michael's, grabbed a black sharpie marker, and thus, Jack Skellington bulbs were born.

Add a few purple and black mini bulbs, and now I am happy with my spooky tree.




Do you like the Nightmare Before Christmas? Did you make any Halloween crafts this year?

  7. I think your tree is perfect. I agree with Joyce. You know come to think of it, you're the perfect candidate for an Etsy shop. Ever think about it?

    1. I love to craft, but when it becomes a job (like making and selling on Etsy) it's no longer fun, you know? I applaud those who can sell their wares and still love what they do, but I know I would just end up getting frustrated lol.

  13. I'm not so much a Nightmare Before Christmas fan as I am a Jack Skellington fan. Love how the ornaments turned out!

  14. We have sets from 2 consecutive years of ornaments from The Nightmare Before Christmas. We bought them at The Disney Store. They didn't make a set last year and we were disappointed.

    1. You know, I was so disappointed too. I thought for sure they were going to do something special for the 20th anniversary, and nothing! What a ripoff lol!
