Jack Skellington Pudding Cups

These Jack Skellington Pudding Cups are the perfect Halloween party treat. These are easy to make and since they are sealed, can be made ahead of time!

This year I am room mom for my son’s class and I wanted to make something fun for the Halloween party treats – that is when the Nightmare Before Christmas themed Pudding Cups popped into my mind!

One of the reasons I like using the Snack Pack pudding cups is because they are inexpensive, tasty and sealed.

If you didn’t know, schools require sealed treats and no longer accept homemade treats (at least our schools) so I have to bring something that is sealed oh and nut-free in case of nut allergies in the classroom.

First, I came up with the Oogie Boogie Pudding Cups and then I came up with Jack Skellington Treat Cups but I decided I needed one more – Jack Skellington Pudding Cups which leads me here.

If you can draw a few simple lines and circles with a Sharpie and cut out a bow tie, you can make these. Trust me, they are super simple to make!

What You Need to Make Jack Skellington Cups:

You can get everything you need below to make these pumpkin king inspired pudding cups. In addition, you will also need scissors.

The video below shows you exactly what you need to do in order to make these Jack Skellington Pudding Cups but if you want more step-by-step instructions, check them out below.

How to Make Jack Skellington Pudding Cups:

STEP 1: Turn the pudding cup upside down so the opening is at the bottom.

STEP 2: Use your Black Sharpie to draw on Jack’s face. Start with two circles and fill them in for his eyes. Then draw a smile and small lines to add the stitch look for his mouth.

STEP 3: Grab your black foam paper and cut a small piece. Fold it exactly in half and begin cutting out Jack’s Bowtie. If you need a reference look at the photos in this post or Google an image of his bowtie. Be sure to make it proportionate to the pudding cup.

STEP 4: Hot glue the bow tie to the bottom of the pudding cup.

STEP 5: Gift them, serve them, or even display them during your next Halloween party! I am sure they will be a real hit!
