Jack Skellington Halloween Craft Tips
- Print the template onto the suggested colored construction paper and cut the pieces out.
- If construction paper won’t go through your printer, you could print onto regular paper and trace around the pieces onto the colored paper/card. You will have to add any detail with a black marker pen.
- Another option is to print onto white paper and color the pieces in with crayons, pens, paints, or pencils.
- Or what about making the ornaments using craft foam? You will have to add any detail with a black marker pen and use a white gel pen on Jack’s bowtie.
- Cut all the pieces out and lay them where they should go before sticking down with glue.
- An optional extra is adding glitter: apply white school glue to the parts you want to add some sparkle, sprinkle glitter on top, shake off the excess and leave to dry.
- Stick a loop of black string or ribbon to the back of the ornaments. Cover the fixings with a piece of cardstock to hide them. Leave everything to dry completely before hanging on your Halloween tree!
- If you want the decorations to last longer, you could run them through a laminator before attaching the hanging loop. When cutting out after laminating the ornaments, make sure you leave a slight edge so that the laminating sheets do not come apart!
