Halloween is not the same without the Pumpkin King himself. This spooky halloween costume is a fun upcycyling project that emulates the Halloween Town character Jack Skellington in this fun cardboard mask.

I think this is one of my spookiest cardboard costume templates, however we all know that the character we are trying to mimic, Jack Skellington only has good intensions.

Using the same technique from the Paper Beard post, I made a beard for our Santa Claus imposter. I used the same paper template however cut out the moustache section and extended the paper beard up the side of the head.
