I was at the dollar store and found these super cute wooden pieces for Halloween. With a little dye I turned them into a fun Halloween Countdown Calendar

I found this large pumpkin at the Dollar Store.

I painted the entire thing with Folk Art Ultra Dye in the color Lady Marmalade.

While that was drying I painted a small wooden pumpkin with Folk Art Chalkboard Paint. The small pumpkins were 5 for $1.

I then used my Folk Art Holiday Stencils and with some of the same chalkboard paint I stenciled on the face for my Jack O Lantern.

I painted the stem with Apple Barrel Burnt Umber paint.

I seasoned the small pumpkin by rubbing chalk all over it and then erasing it. This will prevent the numbers from sticking.

I then placed my number on the pumpkin - you could count down or up.

I put the twine into the pumpkin that came with the set and hot glued it to the large pumpkin. I hung it up and let the countdown begin!
