Halloween Advent

"What on earth do you need all these dang toilet paper rolls for?" Yup, that is what I heard for almost three weeks while my collection was established! I have to give a big shout out and thank you to KENDRA from The Duty Chronicles who has fantastic Christmas advent idea and simple tutorial on her adorable blog. If you remember I made on last year HERE, but it was destroyed in the move and I will add kinds tough to make, so since I had to make a new one I went for Halloween this year I went with Kendra's.
Here is mine!! It hangs on the garage door in our kitchen. NOTE: The numbers were not on it yet as they took a pretty fatal fall from Addy and had to be re-cut... but they are pretty simple to add.
So, I used a glue gun to cover the rolls and the tied them each together with tulle.
One of the big reasons I liked this one is because it will hold more than just candy and two of each thing... one for Addy and one for Mike.
On day one I had a piece of card stock that said "Halloween Pjs" They were a big hit to start the calendar and look loved adorned with several necklaces and a superman cape!
I also stuck in Halloween socks from Targets dollar spot!
Some of their other prizes include, a small flashlight, stamps, stickers, slime, glow sticks, spider rings, fangs, and witch fingers. I also have a paper that says "CUPCAKES" and then I have a pack of Halloween cupcake toppers and sprinkles. And then all the other days have candy in them! 


  1. Great idea! I love it! I'll have to try this for next year! And the kiddos look super cute in their pj's!

  2. Looking cute! Can't get over how big the kids are getting!

  3. VERY cute! I love it! I may had to add that to my "to-do" list for next year. Thanks for linking!


  4. That is awesome! I hope you will link up to my Wickedly Creative Halloween Ideas Party.

  5. I love this idea, so cute. And the kiddos both get something. Like this idea better than last years. Yes, you have been collecting those rolls for awhile. Everytime4 I throw one away I think of you. lol LaLa
