It's no secret that this time of year is my favorite! I know you've seen the Halloween posts around here lately and last year I even shared some of my "Witch Themed" decorations at the house!
This year I did things a little differently and decided that I wanted to do a "Nightmare Before Christmas" theme at the house for Halloween!
If you don't know about the Nightmare Before Christmas you are totally missing out! It's just awesome and it's pretty much my favorite movie!
I just can't get enough of Jack Skellington and his spooky friends from Halloween town!
Even my niece and god-daughters know that it's my "cooking movie"! haha I have a little stand in my kitchen that holds my tablet and when I'm cooking or developing recipes I always have this movie on in the background. ALWAYS! lol
What did I do this year for Halloween?
I'm glad you asked!!
Well I didn't do a TON but here is what I have done...
I put up this huge pumpkin and haunted house "window" in the living room and put out my huge Jack Skellington pillow that Megs got me!
Then I made a Nightmare Before Christmas window scene for our huge picture window!
This is what it looks like during the day -
and this is what it looks like at night -
Oh and there on the left, that's Oogie Boogie from the movie! He's hanging out in the dinning room/kitchen for now.. probably whipping up a batch of snake and spider stew. ;)
It's just black card stock that I cut out into shapes but I love it! :)
Here is the whole wreath that's on the front door. :)
I made Jack out of dura foam styrofoam type balls and just drew his face on with a black sharpie. I went with the black, green and purple color scheme for Halloween and threw in a few pumpkins for "The Pumpkin King".
I also added a little Christmas tree to represent the "Christmas" part of the movie! haha
Oh and I did make some "potion" bottles from the movie as well to decorate the coffee table in the living room but I AM going to write a separate post on how to make those, so that will be up soon! :)
Now onto these apples! haha!
These apples came about because, #1 I love the movie and #2 because I love the Jack Skellington Chocolate Apples that Disney makes every year for Halloween! After all, not only am I obsessed with Jack, I'm also obsessed with Disney! :)
These would be perfect for your Halloween Party or if you're not having a Halloween Party just make them! You'll love them, your kids will love them, the kids in your life will love them... just make em. They're awesome!
You literally dip apples into white chocolate, draw Jack's face on with dark chocolate and let the chocolate harden!
I sat my apples on
