DIY Oogie Boogie's Dice

Today I’m making Oogie Boogie’s Dice from The Nightmare Before Christmas!

I love these dice and they’re so easy to make. 

Fun fact, I dressed up as Oogie Boogie last year and made these dice out of foam…so this template will also work for foam dice you can get at the dollar store. 🙂



Steps to Make Oogie Boogie’s Dice:

  1. Print template.
  2. Cube
    • Tape the template onto a piece of cereal box cardboard.
    • Score all the inside lines (ie don’t cut all the way through the cardboard).
    • Use scissors to cut around the outside lines.
    • Fold along the scored lines. It will become a cube.
    • Glue down the thin flaps, add tape to hold it in place.
  3. Designs
    • **All of the 6 of the designs will be 2 layers each**
    • Glue two layers of cereal box cardboard together. Wait until it dries before continuing.
    • Cut around each of the designs and tape 4 of them onto the doubled up cereal box slab. 
    • Use a craft knife to slice out the noses and eyes.
    • Cut all of the designs out.
    • As for the remaining 2 designs, tape them onto a single layer of cereal box cardboard, cut out the circles and square and then re-tape the design onto another sheet of cereal box cardboard to cut out the skull design. 
    • Use mod podge to glue each of the pieces onto the cube. 
  4. Paint
    • Black craft paint
      • Eye holes/nose holes
      • Edges of each design
      • Add a little around the teeth on each skull
    • Red craft paint
      • Everything
    • Touch up the black eye holes.
  5. Enjoy!
