Sally Christmas Ornament Craft

The Nightmare Before Christmas… is it a Halloween movie, is it a Christmas movie? I always say it is both! Jack Skellington – the Pumpkin King, dresses up as Sandy Claws as he is intrigued by Christmas Town… Shenanigans ensue!

I love this film so much – it’s one of my favorites! I shared a Sally Skellington Ornament Craft which was of her dress, but today’s ornament is of her face!

How To Make Sally Ornaments

Assembling your Sally ornament is really easy – here is how you do it!

Simply print the template onto the corresponding colored paper or card and cut the pieces out.

Alternatively, you could print onto regular paper and trace around the pieces onto the colored card, especially if you are worried that it won’t go through your printer. You will have to draw on some elements though if you go this route.

Using a glue stick, stick Sally’s hair in place. Then space out the ears pieces evenly and attach behind the top of Sally’s head. Finally, stick the eyes on.

If you want to add glitter to your ornament – the option is up to you – apply white school glue to parts of Sally’s hair and sprinkle over red fine glitter. Shake off excess and leave to dry.

Just one more step which is sticking a loop of black string or ribbon to the back of the ornaments. Leave everything to dry completely before hanging on your 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!

I’ve got more Nightmare Before Christmas ornaments on their way, but while you wait, check out the tutorial video over on my YouTube channel.
