Longer now than it seems
In a place that perhaps
That you've seen in your dreams.
For the story that you are about to be told
Began with the holiday worlds of old.
I know you're curious
To see what's inside.
It's what happens
When two holidays collide....

Merry Christmas Instructabrarians!
I am so so excited right now I feel like I might spontaneously combust at any second now. I mean next to Halloween, what other possible holiday can lay claim to having the most extravagant and awesome decorations, celebratory activities, or mind numbingly beautiful atmosphere like X-Mas? But both holidays are my absolute favorite times of the year and I'm always left feeling a bit disheartened at the end of each one of them That's why, for the past couple of years, I've been taken a tip from Tim Burton and combined both Halloween and Christmas together in an attempt to create a beautiful fusion of the two. In this Instructable, I present an old annual favorite of mine from my "Twisted Christmas" collection, the Man-Eating Holiday Wreath.
Step 1: Overview & Inspiration
I love Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas (directed by the awesome Henry Selick). Hands down, it is one of the most awesome Christmas animated films ever conceived and the everything from the art to the animation is pulled off amazingly. And every year I decorate my home to pay tribute to this awesome film.
For those of you who haven't seen the film, The Man-Eating Wreath was one of the terrifyingly bizarre Christmas presents that Jack Skellington left under his guise as "Sandy Claws". This wreath is based on both the film's version as well as the realistic toothy version in Disneyland's Haunted Mansion Holiday.
