13 Days of Halloween Calendar

Hello hello hello my lovely readers! Today I have a fun, easy and very inexpensive craft to add to your Halloween fun!  I have never used a 13 Days of Halloween calendar before but thought now that my daughter is 3 and loves holidays I thought we would star this year.  My calendar was inspired by a picture that I saw in this months Family Circle magazine.  Here is what we came up with!

The supplies were mostly things I had laying around the house.  I used cupcake liners for the circles, punched out the cream numbers and used bags from the dollar store.  I didn't happen to have a frame large enough to hold all of the bags, so I used a vintage window frame.  

Inside each of the bags we put cute little notes of what we will do that day. For example, some of them say: carve a pumpkin, watch Hocus Pocus, go to the pumpkin patch, make cookies...the ideas are endless.  This is such a fun tradition to start this year and I'm so excited we did!  Are there any fun Halloween traditions any of you have with your family? I would love to hear about them!  Have a wonderful day everyone!
