InspirationLast year I made an advent calendar for Christmas. Since then I have been looking for Halloween advent calendars. I found these two that were pretty cool.
I loved that they were drawers so you could put little treats or toys in them, but I didn't like the fact that they didn't have the right number of drawers. October 25th != Halloween. And even *if* I liked these calendars well enough to buy them, they weren't for sale. Apparently there are other people out there with nothing better to do than to make their own Halloween advent calendars. I was on my own.....well sort of.
Once they were dry, I distressed them with some distress ink and mod podged them. We used all kinds of numbers and embellishments to make the drawers look old and random. After all the embellishments were on, I glued the painted spools on using craft glue.
