Halloween Countdown

 My kids, like probably most kids out there, love Halloween. They love picking out their costumes, dressing up and going trick or treating. In this excitement they want to know how many more days until Halloween?! all the time. 

What a better way to answer this question with a Halloween countdown magnetic cookie sheet!?!

I actually made this earlier this year on a weekend craft retreat and
 couldn't wait to bring it out to show the kiddos. 

I love how I can store the upcoming images on the back of the cookie sheet or 
how it stores that way when it it isn't in use for the rest of the year.

Thank goodness for my Cricut and my awesome Close To My Heart stamps.
 I originally thought I would be able to whip this program up really fast, 
 but it turns out coming up with 31 Halloween images was harder then I had expected. 

  • cookie sheet
  • magnets
  • embellishments and/or stamps
  • paper
I big thanks to Lynette for the idea and inspiration for this project and she also used one of her Cricut cartridges to cut out the black grid for this, too.

Kenny drilled two holes in the top where I threaded ribbon through it to hang it on the wall.

Happy Happy Halloween!
