Santa Jack Skellington 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 Jack Skellington Ornament Craft and a Sally Skellington Ornament Craft and now it’s time for a Santa Jack Skellington ornament craft!

I highly recommend always reading everything all the way through before starting any project so you understand all the steps required.

How To Make Santa Jack Ornaments

I’ve got photos to guide you through making this Santa Jack ornament and there is also a slideshow video over on my YouTube channel that you can watch and save to your Playlists for future reference. (Don’t forget to subscribe while you are there!)

Assembling your Jack Skellington 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.

Cut Ornament Pieces

Space out the ears pieces evenly and use a glue stick to attach behind the top of Jack’s head. Then glue on the Santa hat, followed by the fur trim and pompom. Finally, stick Jack’s beard in place.

If you want to add glitter to your ornament – the option is up to you – apply white school glue to the ears, eyes, nose, and mouth and sprinkle over black 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 ornament. 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!
