Jack Skellington Treat Cups (With Video)

These Jack Skellington Treat Cups are to die for and they are perfect to give to guests at a Halloween party or a Nightmare Before Christmas Party.

Jack Skellington Treat Cups

Over the years there has been more and more Nightmare Before Christmas Party Decorations and tutorials released. However, there still isn’t a ton which is why I mostly DIY everything. Besides, I think homemade is cuter sometimes!

Making these treat cups featuring Jack’s various faces, couldn’t be any easier. Truthfully, if you can handle a Sharpie marker and can draw a few lines, then you can totally make these!

Once you’ve decorated the cups to look like The Pumpkin King, you can fill them with your favorite candy. Of course, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are always a must!

Making these couldn’t be any more simple. You truly just need little white pails, a black Sharpie, black foam paper, scissors, glue and of course, candy.
