I finally decided to start my Jack Skellington for Christmas this year. I was having prop withdrawal and started it and couldn't stop. I got it done in one day!! I used a felt material wrapped around 3/4 pvc pipe, a mask I bought this year and some new led Christmas lights--

that is really cool. love him lit up. just a question though, will that felt material hold up in the weather, or was it needed to be sealed in case of rain?

I did not seal the material, I think I might find out the hard way if it doesn't hold up:)

I used clear spray paint from Walmart for a buck a can on my Santa Scarecrow's felt, this is my third year using him and he looks as good as the day as I made him. On my Santa Jack Skellington I used waterproof nylon. Your Jack looks great sitting on your roof.

That is a great idea! I will try that, thanks for the tip. BTW your display is awesome!

I used slotted flat bar and screwed it into the roof (don't tell the wife):D It is secured at the hips.

Love it..I think I could do it too now that you said you used a mask. If only more time!
It was really fairly simple and I purchased the mask at one of the Halloween USA stores for about $12 pretty cheap.
