countdown to Halloween pallet sign {it’s all about the candy}

Halloween is coming and my kiddos are counting down the days with this easy Halloween pallet art.

I saw an idea from Laura at the Corner House on I Heart Naptime last year and I swore I’d make a version for my kiddos. And this year it happened, except I decided to go economical and use a free pallet from my husband’s office. {grin}

 To make your own Halloween countdown pallet you’ll need:

  • Pallet
  • Orange and white craft paint
  • Flat black spray paint
  • Block number and letter stencils
  • Nails (hangers for letters)
  • Planks (cut into squares and drilled in the same spot for the nail)
  • Candy Corn template

Now for the easy do it yourself steps:

Space plan – I suggest you “layout” the design before you use a drop of paint. I used strips of paper and a Sharpie.

Measure – Determine the size of your number (date) blocks. Mine were 3×3 inches, but it will vary with the size of the pallet.

Cut - You’ll need 14 blocks (0-3 for the left and 0-9 for the right)

Spray paint – Paint the number blocks with two coats of flat black paint

Stencil – Measure the center point for each word and start stenciling

My boys love changing the numbers each day and I love to see the excitement on their faces as we get closer to all that candy! I may or may not pick out all my favorites while they’re sleeping… {wink}
