Countdown to Halloween!

Family Circle Magazine for this month has a very cute Treat Bag Display that inspired me to make this Halloween Countdown! So easy, cheap and so much fun for the kids! Starting on October 19, everyday they will open a treat bag until the big day!! The number 13 represents the spookiest day of the year: HALLOWEEN!

a frame, scrapbook paper, ribbons, cupcake liners, scissors, glue, BOO glitter confetti from Walmart and odd numbers that you can download HERE.

make a square paper bag using the scrapbook paper, embellish the bag by flattening out cupcake liners and glue the medallions onto the center of the cupcake liners

glue the ribbon across the frame to hang the treat bags. I secured the treat bags onto the ribbon using paper clips.

Now just fill the treat bags with candy, small toys or a Halloween riddle!

If you don't have a frame, you can just use a piece of string and make a Countdown Banner!

Now off to get to some candy and toys and wait for October 19 to start the Countdown! :)
