Hello, fellow crafters. I just noticed that it has been over a month since my last post! Bad, blogger. Bad! To try to make up for it, I have a very fun project I’ve been working on… a Halloween countdown calendar! I had so much fun making them for Christmas, that I had to do one for Halloween also.
I started with a framed dry erase calendar that was also magnetic. I picked it up at a yard sale for 75 cents, but didn’t have a good place to use it as a calendar. So it got a makeover. I covered the background with Halloween paper, and added glittery foam words, ribbon and rick-rack. I decided not to put numbers on it for now at least. I think the main reason is that I was feeling lazy. Maybe next year. 🙂
Then I covered an old can from the kitchen with more paper and added rick-rack. Gotta have a place to store the pieces, after all.
