Are you looking for a cheap, easy, and original holiday gift idea? Make these Witches’ Spell Napkins using tea/coffee dyed thrifted napkins and iron on transfer paper. I have had great luck using these tee shirt iron on paper – the images come out sharp and can be machine washed over and over again.
DIY Jack Skellington Nightmare Before Christmas Wreath
Make this DIY Jack Skellington Christmas Wreath using a Dollar Store plastic Christmas ornament, foam wreath ring, fabric, and craft foam.
From Jen at EPBOT:
Oh, and I haven’t done this yet myself, but to make this transition into Christmas better you can add a Santa hat & beard on Jack! You could also tack on some extra red-and-white swirls to look like peppermints.

This has been labeled all over the internet and Pinterest as “cute art for childrens’ nurseries”. I respectfully disagree. Because nothing is more scary than a ghostly white print of your beloved and now departed best friend staring at you.
If you watch the video there are more fascinating prints from discarded plush toys, and you can judge for yourself if late at night you would want these animals surrounding you as you try and get to sleep.
