Twas a Nightmare before Christmas Theme




Twas the nightmare before Christmas oh I mean Twas the night before Christmas! I am one who loves the movie, “A nightmare before Christmas” I guess you could say obsessed with good old Jack, so this year  went all out.

I made some of my ornaments out of salt dough which really is not hard at all to do follow this website on how to make them

Then the other ornaments are actually from a coworker of mine her and her daughter made the bows, and the cute Styrofoam Jacks. Such talent her daughter Emily has. So I want to say thank you to Sharon and Emily for the hard work they put into those ornaments.  Now I have to say the lights well they  were suppose to be purple, but I realized oops they look pink from shinning against the white of the tree .  😦 My husband says next time to buy LED lights because they will light up purple. For the Skirt I could not find a black one that would go really well with the tree, so I found a Nice small plush blanket from Steinmart under 20 dollars it worked out well.


As for the dinning table well all of that is what I have had through the years so I just reused the stuff. The pine cones I actually spray painted with Silver glitter paint and white. Then I used left over faux pearls and crystal beads that I have been keeping since my wedding. Never know when you are going to use those things for decorations. For the bottles well those are recycled bottles of mine I just frosted them with  Martha Stewart frost paint in white.

The moss is from Michael’s  I used it last year and was able to save it.  All in all the table decor was all under 20 dollars. the Vases I got at a Dollar store a long time ago  as you can see I never really get rid of stuff .
