How to Make your own Halloween Trick or Treat Countdown Calendar


Have you ever wished that you could celebrate Halloween with your kids a little longer than the 2 hours you spend Trick or Treating on Halloween night? Start a new tradition this year and use the HYGGEHAUS wooden storage organizer to create a Halloween Advent Calendar for you and your family. 

To start with, order your wooden storage organizer (1). Upon arrival, sand the organizer and apply paint (2). Next, you will apply numbers (3). These can be hand drawn or if you have an inkjet printer you can order the HYGGEHAUS clear sticker paper to print the numbers on. Finally you will fill your drawers (4).

Make it a fun family activity and get the kids to help decorate or come up with some exciting new tricks and treats to put in the drawers.  

Here is a list of ideas of tricks, treats, and activities to fill each drawer with that will guarantee your family to have a fun filled October.

  • Go to the pumpkin patch
  • Carve a pumpkin
  • Make a new Halloween decoration
  • Decorate your house for Halloween
