Is your house buzzing with excitement over Halloween costumes and trick-or-treating? Create your own Halloween Countdown Calendar to mark the days until All Hallows’ Eve arrives with this not-so-creepy craft from Camille at Makoodle.

Filling your countdown calendar tins with candy is certainly a treat, but Camille recommends using jokes or other fun knick-knacks to cut back on the pre-Halloween sugar high.

What you’ll need:

  • 2” Round metal tins (these ones from Wilton work well)
  • Free Halloween countdown printable (available on Makoodle)
  • Circle punch (Camille used 2” Fiskars Squeeze Circle Punch)
  • Mod Podge
  • Magnets
  • Magnetic board
  • Crafting glue (E-6000 craft adhesive works well)
  • 10×20 frame
  • Metal sheet
  • Metal cutters

Assembling this craft is relatively simple, although it does require a fair amount of preparation beforehand.  Make sure to do the cutouts before you begin so they’re ready when you need them. For full craft details check out the Halloween Countdown page on Makoodle.

Before the night of terror arrives, give your garden a spooky makeover with these Halloween-inspired Painted Rocks and these spooktacular Halloween Lanterns!
