Halloween Countdown in Felt

Step right in........

Our Emmy saw the countdown calendar for Halloween in a Pottery Barn catalog and wanted it so badly for this year. Halloween is one of her very favorite holidays. I asked her why she didn't make one of her own and with the artful spirit I love about my girls she set to. She even parted with some of her allowance to purchase orange felt. She designed the house, pockets, windows, etc. and I helped with some last minute sewing, ghost & number-making, along with rod-pocket and stick-cutting.

Each numbered pocket can hold candy but I am going to put a little note in each with directions for Em to seek out the treat and possibly a trick or two. :-)

Em even planned out the window opening for the last Halloween night to reveal the hidden 13th night pocket. We added the ghost last night.
Happy Halloween nights!!!!

WOW! This project is FANTASTIC!!! I am so impressed, I think Em is a designer in the making for SURE!!! It looks very professional Em, well done!

Loved the pics from Amish country as well. (Just catching up here). I was just in Lancaster County, PA last week.

Cheers and Congrats to Em on a job VERY well done!
