30 Days till Halloween!!!

It's that time of year again!! I LOVE Halloween. And my girls know what it means to for it be October 1st.

Time to get the Advent Calendar out! Well, last year I had a different one and I had to throw it away because it was falling apart. It was a small bale of hay and it was all decorated, but it got messy during the move. So...I found this calendar online that inspired me. She had a brilliant idea and I had to make one just like it. Little did I know that the stickers that I bought from Michael's looked a little like some of the one's she used. OOPS! heehee

Luckily I had some felt laying around in my scrap closet and all I needed was a big piece of fleece fabric and those stickers. VIOLA! After 3 days of making this during Colton's naptime I got it all done. And the pockets are even stuffed with fun Halloween ideas!

Here is a close up of the calendar. You can see some of the goodies in the pockets!
This Franken-girl is my fave sticker. It's from K & Co.

What I did was number a few of the pockets. If you look back at the first picture you will see only 4 numbers on the entire calendar. The 31st (for Halloween), 4th, 14th, and 23rd. The 3 other dates are the days of my kids birthdays (not in October though). Morgan figured that one out without me saying anything. LOL
There are more pockets than there are days, by one, but it would have looked off if I left off one of the pockets. Plus it gave me a good excuse to decorate with the cute stickers I found by Martha Stewart and K&Co.

I would love to see your advent calendar if you do one for Halloween. We love to do this for October AND December. Gets the kids all excited for the holidays. And THEY ARE approaching soooo fast!

This is so cute. I'll have to do something like this for next year. I don't have the space for it this year, but next year we should. Thanks for the awesome idea! Stopped by from tatertots and jello.
