Nightmare before christmas party Answered

I want to have a nightmare before christmas halloween party in a couple years, but in the years i wait i want to make some custom decorations. Does anyone have any ideas? They must be fairly inexpensive i am fifteen so i dont have very much income, but the can be time consuming since i have years. And how about some christmas style decorations too. thankz in advance!
P.S. my favorite materials are paper, popsicle sticks, and duct tape so if it includes those materials it is that much better.

That's my favorite movie. :D Here are some awesome Nightmare Before Christmas ibles:

the frame for that is made out of pvc pipe, which would probably be easier to deal with and more durable than popsicle sticks for something that size!

Another pvc frame one:

Thankz jessy I should be able to use the giant puppets to get ideas for my jack

I think most of the characters could be reproduced in papier mache...

Thankz Kiteman i had an idea to make a human or bigger jack skellington out of paper and popsicle sticks then i could paper mache over that.

That sounds like a good plan.
