Halloween is coming just around the corner and if you are a major fan like me then you will want to make sure you enjoy everyday leading up to the big candy event. I created this super easy (but a bit time consuming because you have to make 31 of these after all) countdown.
You will need:
Black cardstock or construction paper (I used construction paper because it was cheaper).
Assorted Halloween prints papers
Small tags (I used wooden circles and stars)
Black embroidery thread
Creep Cloth (see below)
Plates or other items to create a stand (I used plates and flower pots from Ikea-but I don't know if they still make them).
Step one is to create all your boxes. I used a die cut from my husbands school. Perhaps you have your own die cut or you could go to a local scrapbook place and they are more than likely to have one. These are 2" boxes.
This is how they look. I drilled small hole in all the circles. The stars would break every time I tried to drill them but the circles did fine.
I tied the thread around the back. The numbers are written on with a silver permanent marker.
The last step is to assemble. First build your stand, laying a piece of creep cloth on each plate. Then arrange your boxes. Wouldn't this look so super cute on a little black or purple or silver table? Because my kids are so little I will definitely be putting it up out of their reach but in years to come I will find it a special place.
