Tutorial Thursday {Jack Skellington Ornament}

B O O!
It's Jack Skellington... as a Snowman.
Please allow time for all photos to load :)
Have Fun!

As always, if children will be doing the creating, I recommend they use
Sculpey brand Polymer Clay is safe for children.

Polymer clay can be found in your local craft store.  
 Remember to keep all sharp tools away from children. Read 

and follow all package directions on the back of

your polymer clay packaging.
Condition (squish & soften) clay before using & wash hands
between using each color.

Warm Jack up by wrapping his neck with a scarf made of wool felt~
I also think Jack would look just as cute with only his head and santa hat ;)

My DIY project was inspired by the film Nightmare Before Christmas 

As seen on

Just found your site from the Craft Gossip email - LOVE these ornaments - brings back a lot of great memories of when my son was younger and we watched the video way too many times! Will try to make some of these for Christmas!

Found you in the Craft Gossip daily e-mail. Loved the tutorial. I think I'm ready to make my first foray into Sculpee!

I'll stick around and check out the rest of your blog. From what I've seen I'm excited.

Thanks a bunch!

I love this idea! I am planning a "Nightmare Before Christmas" Halloween party for 2012, and I am going to make a few of these for the tree I am putting up! Thank you for the great idea, and great photos! I will use your tip to just do the head and hat.
