In case you hadn’t noticed, I am a BIG The Nightmare Before Christmas fan. Jack Skellington and I are buddies, that’s for sure! I was at Disneyland with my family last week, and we went to Mickey’s Halloween Party. Ah-MAZE-ing!! This time of year The Haunted Mansion is decked out The Nightmare Before Christmas style, both inside and out. My boy and I went on it and I was in heaven, especially since the Dapper Dans (the Disneyland barbershop quartet) were floating on a foggy river in ghoulish makeup singing songs from the movie while we were waiting in line. Swoon. I wanted to get a picture with my boyfriend Jack, but the line was super long to meet him, and I had already maxed out my character line waiting tolerance on princesses and superheroes earlier in the day. 😉
Much to my dismay, The Nightmare Before Christmas is sorely underrepresented in the world of crafts and tutorials. I looked and looked and LOOKED on both Google and Pinterest, and these are the 30 ideas that I was able to find for you to check out. (There are plenty of The Nightmare Before Christmas products for sale on Etsy, but I wanted to include only free ideas and tutorials in this roundup.) I also made a Jack Skellington/Nightmare Before Christmas Pinterest Board — follow along to see any additional ideas that I find! Also, don’t forget to check out my post entitled, “The Top Ten Reasons Why I am Obsessed with Mickey’s Halloween Party.” Lots of pics of the park all decked out (including the Haunted Mansion) and the scoop on all of my favorite Halloween-y Disneyland fun!
Here’s to Jack Skellington fans everywhere! Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good FRIGHT!

Mickey’s Halloween Party is one of my FAVORITE things ever!! The park transforms, the villains come out to meet you, the Dapper Dans wear ghoul makeup and float down a misty river singing songs from The Nightmare Before Christmas, the ride The Haunted Mansion is transformed to be The Nightmare Before Christmas themed, there are special Halloween-y treats available around the park, and you can go trick or treating as you walk from ride to ride!!! *SWOON* If you are thinking about taking your family to “The Happiest Place on Earth” this Halloween season then you should check out the travel agency Get Away Today.
