Since Crafty October overlaps with 100 Days of Disney this year, I felt it was only fitting to create this Halloween’s free printables, themed around Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, which, in case you didn’t know, is a Disney Movie; produced by Touchstone Pictures, Skellington Productions Inc, Tim Burton Productions, and Walt Disney Pictures. I will be writing about the film during 100 Days of Disney, but in short it’s about Jack Skellington, King of Halloween Town, who discovers Christmas Town, but doesn’t quite understand the concept. Is it a Halloween movie? Is it a Christmas movie? (I think it’s both!) It’s a great film, and if you’ve never seen it, you can buy The Nightmare Before Christmas here. Or here in the US.
I’ve got a series of printables that all match, and by the time I’ve released them all, you’ll have all the party printables you need to throw an awesome “This Is Halloween” party, for free! (But hey, if you wanted to buy me a drink to say thanks, I wouldn’t say no!)
Hanging Treat Cones – Free Printables
The Nightmare Before Christmas
There are 12 designs in all, across all of the printables in The Nightmare Before Christmas set with the following characters. For the hanging treat cones, I’ve also included blank ones using the 5 coloured chevron backgrounds.
Simply click the text links above, or the images after the instructions, to download a sheet of the character/coloured hanging treat cones that you want. Or you can find them all together in one document here.
Each sheet makes two cones of the same character/colour, print off as many as you need onto thick paper. Cut the square out first, then along the diagonal line to make two triangles. To make the cone, flip over to the blank side, with the long straight side to your left, as shown in the photo below. Take the bottom corner, and bend it around to the middle point, lining up the two points, holding in place with your fingers. Then bring the other corner around to the back of the cone, lining up the points again. Secure along this back edge with a strip of tape. Add another smaller piece of tape along the edge inside the cone. It can be a bit confusing the first few times you make these, but once you have the knack you’ll be creating them in no time at all!
You could leave them as is, or, to hang them up, punch two holes as shown, and thread some ribbon through. Knot to create a loop.
