We're Counting Down Till Halloween!!

That's right!

We are counting down in our house the days until Halloween!

According to our family 17 more days until FUN, CANDY and COSTUMES!!

Designer Lindsay Wahl offers a fun and unique way using the Echo Park Paper Happy Halloween collection for your family to keep track of the days! And Designer Patti Milazzo shares a creative way to cover those yummy carmel lollipops and more!












Halloween Countdown Calendar
Designer: Lindsay Wahl


 Glue Arts Adhesive Squares, Raisens, UCutIt Foam
 Echo Park Happy Halloween Collection
 DCWV cardstock
 EK Success 1 square punch, Owl punch
 Sizzix Big Shot, Pumpkins #2
 Cricut, Stamping Essentials cartridge
 Chalkboard, chalk
 Magnets

1. Die cut 18 pumpkins and 15 large owls (2). Add number stickers to pumpkins (all but 2) and owls, as well as small round magnets to the back side of each numbered die cut. 
2. Punch squares from patterned paper (14 of each pattern if using 3 patterns). Punch and assemble small owls.
3. Use Adhesive squares to adhere squares all around the chalkboard perimeter. I used Raisens to adhere the cream polka dot paper all around the sign for an added effect.
4. Use the foam adhesive to adhere tree to the chalkboard. Use Raisens to adhere the small owls onto the tree. 
5. Use the foam adhesive and squares to adhere the moon to the corner of the chalkboard.
6. Use adhesive squares to adhere the pumpkins to the bottom corner of the sign; use foam adhesive to add the October 31st sticker.
7. Let the countdown begin!
