How to Make a 3D Jack Skellington Pumpkin with Hot Glue
I’ve been sharing a few Nightmare Before Christmas DIY in celebration of the 25th Anniversary and I think this one is my favorite. So let’s get started!
What you will need:
- Faux Pumpkin
- White Spray Paint
- Black Spray Paint
- Glue Gun & Hot Glue
- Teflon Sheet or a large piece of glass
- Image of Jack’s Face
- Adult Santa Hat
Here’s a quick video tutorial I posted on Facebook, but I’ve also included step by step photos below. 🙂 BTW are you following me on Facebook? I share lots of ideas there too!
Draw or print Jack’s face to use as a template.
Place a Teflon sheet (or non-stick craft sheet) on top of the image.
Using the Hot Glue Gun trace over the image with Hot Glue. When tracing the eyes, trace the outline first and let it dry. Then fill in with glue.
Once the glue has dried, remove from the mat and trim edges as needed with scissors.
Next, spray paint the Foam Pumpkin white, let dry. Spray paint the facial features black, let dry.
Attach the facial features to the Foam Pumpkin with Hot Glue.
Add the Adult’s Santa Deluxe Hat.
Now Jack is ready to party!
I hope you give this project a try and be sure to check out the rest of our Nightmare Before Christmas Halloween Party!
