I adore the Nightmare Before Christmas and so, making a Jack Skellington sleep mask is one of those DIY Disney cruise fish extender gifts that I felt NEEDED to be made. So I did it. Woohoo!
Jack Skellington Sleep Mask
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we have forever been a fan of the Pumpkin King and his antics. So, when I decided to make a ton of DIY fish extender gifts for my future (long in the future) Disney cruise, well, I knew that making a Jack Skellington sleep mask was on my list.
Plus, I can make so much more fun items with these Jack Skellington cut files, I just can’t wait! If you’re ready to make a Nightmare Before Christmas sleep mask, let’s get started.

Tips to Make NIghtmare Before Christmas Sleep Mask
- Start by clicking here to grab your dark (but exceedingly easy) Jack Skellington sleep mask cut file set.
- Then check out these pretty sleep masks for your blanks. Notice I used the plural there. Yes, you only need one sleep mask blank if you’re just making one Nightmare Before Christmas sleep mask, but you’re going to wish you’d snagged several different colors in a minute, because I have already made a few other Disney sleep mask designs that you are going to want to check out:
- Once you’ve got your files and a blank, go ahead and break out your black vinyl scraps–this is the scrap vinyl project you’ve been waiting for…you can use even the smallest bits.
- If you’re anything like me, you might be a little concerned about getting everything in place perfectly…so, to help assuage my concerns, I always try to remember to use the attach function in Cricut Design Space. That does waste a little vinyl, but honestly, if it keeps me from stressing about spacing my design, it’s worth it.
- One other thing before I started that I felt needed to happen: I ironed my sleep mask blanks. They were a little wrinkled after transporting them to my porch, but I wanted the vinyl to be applied evenly, so ironing it was!
- If I’m going to recommend a heat transfer vinyl for this sleep mask, it’s going to be the Siser EasyWeed you can find here that I used. Because the cuts are such small pieces, it’s just so much more convenient to not have to deal with the whole separate transfer sheet thing.
