The Oogie Boogie Inspired Yard DecorOct 07th, 2019 | by: Alice Kun
So, I figured I would share my ideas with the world, because we can’t be the only people who love The Nightmare Before Christmas…and for us, here in Florida, everything I used is stuff we have laying around the house. (Those “hurricanes’ always leave us with extra plywood that needs to be used somehow!) This project is easy, fun to do, and overall cheap to make! Everything I used I had at home, and I bet a lot of you have all the supplies at home as well!
- Large piece of plywood
- A pencil
- Safety Goggles ·
- Primer (paint to keep the wood safe from the weather)
- Large paintbrush
- Tack Nails
- Permanent Marker
- Craft Paint (black, red/or white)
- Small paintbrush
- Clear Spray Paint
- A jigsaw
- A sander (or sandpaper works just fine!)
First you need to figure out what you want your Oogie Boogie. Man to look like. If you go online, you can find lots of different pictures of him. Decide which one you like. For this project, since I want everyone to be able to do it, I went on and found a picture of him that I liked, printed it out using Paint, (yes, that very old Paint program every computer has!) I printed him out using 5 sheets of paper by 5 sheets of paper, to get the size I wanted. If you are confident in your drawing skills, you don’t need to print it out, but everyone is different!

Step # 3
Now, all you have to do is spray the whole finished Oogie Boogie Man with clear spray paint. Make sure to cover it well, to try to eliminate mildew from growing.
