Halloween Countdown Project

Because of a certain conference {not naming any names here}, I was delayed in this post.

I had this super cute idea, and I actually implemented it! Amazing, I know. 

I had a few $ mailboxes from Tarjay left over and thought it would be really cute to make them into Halloween countdown treat holders!

 This is the front. One for each of my kiddos. {btw, felt very maternally inadequate after said conference, like I don't have enough children. :) One woman I met has 8 boys! and 3 girls!}

Side profile. When the flag is up, they have received a special delivery

For my science boy

And my whimsical kitty girl

 The back view

Special delivery!

I wanted to find all of the neat Halloween candy to fill these up with, like wax lips, gummy eyeballs, zombie finger-pops, pirate gold (bubble-gum), etc...

They love them, and ask me every morning, "When is our special delivery arriving!?"

After Halloween I have another idea for them! I reveal that 11/1. But, just in case you want to join me in this'll want to get yourself some of these, or other type of container you can embellish.

Great idea! My children are grown but I will still eagerly wait with a container ready to fill!
