Christmas in July- Jack Skellington Holiday Decoration Craft


This craft features Jack Skellington from “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and can be made with Dollar store items. It’s also perfect for both Christmas and Halloween.

I have personally made this craft myself and it’s easy. This one comes from The Keeper of the Cheerios.


  • Pizza Pan
  • Clothes Pins
  • White Spray paint
  • Black Spray Paint
  • Glitter or Glitter Spray Paint
  • Ribbon
  • Hot Glue
  • Black Sharpie or paint


  1. Spray paint your pizza pan white and half of your clothespins white
  2. Spray paint your other half of clothespins black
  3. Spray your glitter spray or add glitter to the wet paint on your pizza pan and over your white clothespins
  4. Spray some of the black along the edge.
  5. Once all dry sketch on your jack skellington face
  6. Fill in your face with a black sharpie or black craft paint
  7. Attach your clothespins to the outer edge of your pan, we rotated 3 white, 3 black all the way around (at the bottom it took about 4 white and 4 black to keep the pattern for the last 2 sections)
  8. Once your clothespins are in place glue each one down to secure them for long term use (Make sure you do this!)
  9. Form a bow with your ribbons and glue in place at the bottom of your pan
  10. Glue a piece of ribbon to the back to hang from
  11. Optional – seal your pizza pan with a glitter blast sealant
  12. Hang and enjoy

Here’s a video tutorial they put up:

I also made my own and used a purple ribbon.  Something else I did was make spiderwebs out of hot glue and added them to it for a bit of extra detail.

I took dabs of hot glue and when I pulled the gun away a long strand would form. I kept pulling that strand forming tiny strands that resemble webs. Apply them to the piece.
