My Jack Skellington (Halloween and Christmas)

Pin It 
  I have always been a big fan of Tim Burton and Love the characters from The Nightmare before Christmas. So this year my wonderfully handy husband and I decided to make a big Jack Skellington for Halloween. Then I figured since I already had jack made I would do a Christmas version so he could stay out even longer.
JACK Skellington 
 We came up with the plan to use PVC Pipes, Connectors and a Styrofoam ball painted black
Halloween outfit I used my brother-in-laws Halloween costume (just the jacket) and mask from a previous year. (THANK YOU CHRIS)  I bought some cheap black leggings from Walmart. I also used my son's size 10 toddler shoes, and my husbands black dress socks.
Christmas Outfit I found a inexpensive red felt Santa costume at Joanns craft store. Originally $20.00 got it for $7.00 (i love a bargain!). I bought the jack skellington santa hat that has the beard attached to it from amazon. White fuzzy trim from joanns. Then I used the same black leggings, socks, shoes, mask, and white gloves from the halloween costume
 I made a diagram below of our sizes for the his body. After we made him we could have adjusted his sizes a bit but this is just an idea of size for you.

 I thought I would be trustworthy this year and leave out the candy. Not sure if people were honest but the bowl was empty when we got home.
Here is my house with my Jack and Ghosts.
(I thought I snapped more pictures of him in his big red suit but I guess not. here are two.)

I would LOVE to see if anyone else decideds to create one of these. Leave a comment below with a link to photos. 
 in the meantime....
