After years of thinking about it, I’ve finally made a 13 Days of Halloween calendar! This was lots of fun to make, and it’s going to be even more fun when the 19th rolls around and I can start to use it. Throughout next week, I’m going to share tutorials for all of the crafty projects that make up the 13 days, and I’ll include printable numbers and templates so you can make one of these fun calendars for yourself. Many of the individual projects can be repurposed as place cards and place card embellishments, favor boxes, and a couple would be great tranformed into Christmas decorations or ornaments, too.
Here are a few detail shots of the calendar — and don’t forget to stop by next week for the full tutorials. Update: You can find a full list of the tutorials below.
