Ever since our oldest daughter watched The Nightmare Before Christmas on Netflix a few months back, everything has been about Jack and Sally! Even when we visited Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween last month at Magic Kingdom, she wanted to make sure that she met Jack and Sally, even if we had to stand in line for over 2 hours! Which became my inspiration for this Jack Skellington Pumpkin No Carve Craft!
Jack Skellington Pumpkin No Carve Craft
So, when I asked her which character she would like to make on her pumpkin this year, without hesitation she answered Jack Skellington! Both girls got to paint the pumpkin white and help out.
I think Jack has been one of the easier pumpkins we have made, at least I thought he would be. For some reason I just couldn’t get his eyes just right, so my wonderful hubby with no problem drew Jacks for us! I think he did an awesome job portraying his eyes and mouth perfectly!
The girls were both super excited about Jack, but of course were wondering were Sally was. So, my next project this week will be to get our pumpkin Sally all done!
This project is super easy and you don’t need that many supplies!
- White tempera paint
- Black tempera paint
- Pencil (to draw lines)
Simply paint your entire pumpkin white. You may need to do two coats, but one regular sized bottle of tempera paint will be enough.
Using a pencil draw where you want Jacks eyes and mouths to go. This helps to make sure that the lines and eyes are even on both sides.
Using the black tempera paint go ahead and line out your pencil and color in the eyes, nose, and mouth. Now let dry.
Like I said a super easy Jack the Pumpkin King craft perfect for even the kiddos to help out!
