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:)

Before:


After:

^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):

My mom had actually been up at like 6am to let the dog out of her kennel and didn't even notice LOL When she actually got out of bed officially in the morning, I was waiting with my camera to video her reaction. When I told her to check out her xmas present, she looked around and started HYSTERICALLY laughing her head off and jumping aorund like a little kid. It was amazing!! lol She reacted like that for half an hour and ran around touching everything over and over:) When my dad got out of bed he was also totally shocked and couldn't stop smiling. God, I love making presents lol Cheesy

Glad that everyone likes what I did:)
