One of my favorite Halloween movies is The Nightmare Before Christmas! Since Jack Skellington is such a great character, I thought it would be fun to create some pumpkins in his likeness.
The Pumpkin King! I wrapped orange lights around his neck to simulate him being on fire like he was in the opening scene in the movie.
Here is a DIY video I created to show how it is made.

For Jack Skellington, I used resin pumpkins and patio paint. I attached the pumpkins to a painted paper towel roll, created the collar out of stiff felt and craft foam.
Here are the materials I used to make my Jack Skellington.
I drew a bat face pattern and cut it out of craft foam. I then heated the foam with a warm dry iron to mold the ears and curve the face.
I drew the face on a white pumpkin and then painted it with Patio Paint.
