Last year I decided to purchase a pencil Christmas tree and decorated it in a Chewbacca Christmas Tree theme. This year we chose to change it up with this epic Nightmare Before Christmas Tree, I love having a fun themed tree every year!!

When I decided to put the tree together I knew that I would need a few more DIY Jack Skellington ornaments so that is where this DIY ornament comes in. Be sure to check out our Jack Skellington Door Printable, DIY Jack Skellington Piggy Bank, Jack Skellington Cookie Pops and this Jack Skellington Pumpkin T-shirt too.

How to make this easy wood slice Jack ornament:


Blank wooden round ornament (you can buy them at Michaels)

a pencil

black acrylic paint

paint brush

white twine

  1. Gather your supplies.

2. Sketch Jack Skellington faces onto the ornaments with a pencil.

3. Paint the face details black. Tip: use a fine tipped paint brush for thin lines.

4. Seal with mod podge (optional) and tie twine at the top for hanging.

Easy right?! This is probably my favorite Jack crafts to date. I think that I need to make a bunch more to attach to Christmas gifts this year!

I love the different expressions on each Jack face ornament.
