I decided for my parents xmas present this past year I would, with the help of my trusty little bro, strip all xmas paraphenalia from the living room and do it all Nightmare Before Christmas! All in secret of course, after our parents had gone to sleep on xmas eve.. You do need to know that my parents actually like NBC alot and do have random paraphenalia around the house but they were never expecting anything like this to happen! I made everything from scratch:)
^Mini coffins made with old illustrated calendar pages
^I did 12 of these I think, made of felt and I painted the actual black lines making his face with acrylic.
1-Polymer clay Jack Skellington heads, I did 30 each with different expressions and mounted them on a large satin ribbon bow and felt base. 2-A man eating plan to add with the pointsettas, drool included!
I made 4 stockings, one for each kid in my family (Mine is the Sally one lol) completely on my own design. I had so many compliments, people wanted me to sell them! lol I used a quilted cotton base with felt for the characters themselves and a cotton lining. More detailed shots (I apologize about the images being so dark, my camera busted while I was visiting so I had to use someone else's):
And lastly a man eating wreath and my brother and I looking out of it after taking an hour to strip and redocorate the tree lol
