Are there any other The Nightmare Before Christmas fans in the house? Somehow I managed to make it into my late twenties as a Halloween fanatic without ever having seen this movie! BIZARRE, right?! Well, luckily one of my very best friends and my little sister are both fanatics about this movie and helped me to see the error of my ways. It has become a major staple in our home ever since. I show it to my kids when they are far too young to see it. 😉 Don’t worry — we usually fast forward through the Oogey Boogey scene with Santa Clause, and we also watch the perfectly benign It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! several times throughout October. We don’t need to scar them for life or anything.
I have been searching the web for great free tutorials, projects, and recipes inspired by The Nightmare Before Christmas for a roundup that will be coming your way next week, and they are surprisingly difficult to find. So what did I do? I wrote an email to Kristin at The Simple Perks and asked her to create a The Nightmare Before Christmas inspired tutorial. It wasn’t hard to decide on what we both thought would be fun……the opening song, of course! “THIS IS HALLOWEEN!” Too fun. We went to Disneyland a couple of Octobers ago and I loved hearing The Dapper Dans (their barbershop quartet) sing “This is Halloween” in their orange and black costumes. WAY too much fun! (And GUESS WHAT?! WE ARE GOING BACK THIS MONTH!!! Eeeeeeekkkk!!!!)
So, without further ado, I present to you Kristin’s This is Halloween The Nightmare Before Christmas printable!
Isn’t it fantastic?! I am decorating my home for Halloween tomorrow, and I can’t wait to stick this puppy in a frame as part of my decor!
Did you see the other free Halloween printable that Kristin created for Bombshell Bling last month? You’re gonna love these cutesy Halloween cards!
Here’s one last printable from Kristin that I know you will love.
This one can be found in her Etsy shop:
