This DIY Jack Skellington Sharpie Mug is no tricks and all treats. This easy Halloween craft makes a great party favor too!

It’s no secret that I have just a “little” obsession with all things  Disney. Surprise, surprise, right? Not! But, did you know that I am also the town pen collector and hoarder? Yep! I love pens in all kinds of pretty colors. My pen obsession is not quite as deep as my love for Disney but it’s pretty close. So what does one do when she has an excess of Sharpieicon  pens in her desk drawer? She (that would be me) creates fun craft projects centered around her love of Disney. Since we are in the thick of Halloween season, this easy Jack Skellington Sharpie Mug makes a fun Halloween party favor or gift idea.

If you are a fan of Jack, Sally and The Nightmare before Christmasicon  then this mug idea is perfect for you! It is so easy to create too.


  • White Mugicon  (I found mine at the dollar store!)
  • Black Sharpie Markericon
  • Silhouette Cameoicon
  • Jack Skellington Stencil ( download cut file here)

Stencil Vinylicon

Print out Jack’s face on your Silhouette machine using stencil vinyl and position on the mug. Fill in with the black Sharpie. If you don’t have a Silhouette machine or you feel artistic, you can certainly draw Jack’s face freehand. Have at it! I leave the artistic stuff to Gabrielle but you can absolutely draw his face freehand.

Now just add the line to finish off his mouth. To set the ink, turn your oven to 350 degrees. Place your mug on a baking sheeticon  and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely. I recommend hand washing your mug.

Fill this fun mug with candy for Halloween and give it as a gift or fill with your favorite coffee or beverage and enjoy. Your choice.
