Halloween Countdown

Last year I made a countdown to Halloween that we started on October 1st.  We had such fun doing it that I thought we should do it again this year and share here.  I used my Cricut Machine to cut everything out, but it could easily be done without one. 

The first thing you need to make square cards numbered 1-31 for each day of the month and find a place to hang them up.
Then you make enough die-cuts or pictures for each day.  Here is a picture of what I use.  I have an assortment of pumpkins, spiders, and other Halloween-type things.  (I used various Cricut Cartridges for this)

By the time Halloween hits your countdown will look something like  what is pictured below!
My pictures are not the best, I am sorry, but I hope this gives you an idea of what it looks like.  My sons looked forward to putting something new up every day last year.
