You know how some people like to put up a Chistmas tree the day after Thanksgiving? Because that’s pretty much how I decorate for Halloween… The day after the school year officially begins is “Halloween Season” for me. Because I live in a HOA that has “rules” about when decorations can go up I start inside my house and slowly work my way out. My youngest son has inherited my adoration of all things Fall and spooky, and will ask me nonstop – in typical toddler fashion – how many more days we have until Halloween. So this year I decided our first decoration would be a countdown to the big night. This Days Until Halloween sign is really easy and inexpensive to make. You’ll only need three items to complete the project:
- A frame to accomodate an 8X10 image – I use a slightly larger frame like this 11X14 Frame with Mat, because I like the look of the mat.
- Chalk Markers
- My Free Printable Days Until Halloween Sign
Download the Printable Days Until Halloween Sign and print it at 8X10. Make sure the “fit picture to frame” box is NOT checked.
Place the sign into your frame and then use your chalk markers to fill in the remaining days left until Halloween night! Each day you can use a damp cloth to erase the number and write the new one in chalk marker.
