If there is one cartoon I have seen more than any other, it is The Nightmare Before Christmas. Crazy enough, I didn’t see it until I was an adult, but shortly after my younger daughter turned two she discovered it and we watched it over and over and over again. I went from disliking it, to tolerating it and then to liking it and then finally loving it. The story really is quite remarkable when you really get to know it. My toddler begging me for Jack and Sally pumpkins is what started my whole crazy pumpkin creating. So here they are, Jack and Sally, simply meant to be.
Nightmare Before Christmas Pumpkins
You will need:
- dollar store pumpkins
- black, teal, white, gray and red paint
- paint brush
- masking tape
- red yarn
- hot glue
Cove the stem of your pumpkin with tape, so it will be protected from the paint. Paint one of your pumpkins white and one of the pumpkin teal.
After the pumpkins are dry, add the face to each pumpkin. For Jack Skellington, paint two ovals for his eyes a mouth with stitches and nose holes. For Sally give her white circle eyes, outlined in grey with black eyelashes. Red lips with stitches coming out either side and extra stitches on her cheeks.
