Supplies Needed for Your Halloween Countdown Board: 


1. Glue the Twine

Use your hot glue gun to secure the twine on the back of your board. Ensure that it’s secure and allow to set.

2. Place the Chalkboard Pieces

You’ll want to make sure everything is centered. Place the chalkboard pieces at the top center of your board. Don’t glue until it’s right where you want it. You can even use a ruler to map and measure everything out.

3. Spell it Out!

Start placing your letters so that it spells out “Days Until Halloween.” I put each word on its own line. To ensure that everything was centered, I started with the middle letters and worked each word from there.

4. Glue the Chalkboard Pieces

Now that your letters are in place, you can glue and secure the chalkboard pieces.

5. Skull-it-Up!

Before gluing, decide where you want to place your Halloween felt pieces. Once you’re happy with the look, secure it with your hot glue gun.

I’m  so happy with how it looks! And how easy was that?!
