Ultimate Nightmare Before Christmas Prop Gift

I recently received the ultimate Nightmare Before Christmas prop as a gift...

It is an actual, full-sized NBC skull, that came directly off of the 2011 Haunted Mansion Holiday from Disneyland Park, Anaheim, California.

In 2012, I believe the tons of  NBC skulls that covered the Mansion, inside and out, were replaced with new ones, and the old ones were auctioned off individually. The new ones are painted differently, with more black around the eye and nose area.

As a HUGE Disneyland aficionado and NBC fan, I freaked when I opened it.

Behold the beauty......


Nightmare Before Christmas Wrapping Paper DIY Tutorial

This is a tutorial on how to make your own Nightmare Before Christmas gift wrapping paper. It can be used for NBC prop making, or actual gift wrap for a huge NBC fan!

This creepy paper is made famous in the attic scene of the Haunted Mansion Holiday at Disneyland Park in California:

There is an easy part and a hard part to making this.

1 . The easy part is the wrapping papers are all pre-made by a great special effects artist Tim Baker. He has made these digital papers available FREE online here:



2 . The Hard Part is you need to print these out yourself. If you want to print out large scale paper, you will need to have access to a large scale printer, such as Fedex/Kinkos, or other copy shops, which can be pricey.
(I happen to know someone that owns a large scale printer, so I lucked out)
