Three Ways to use our Halloween Advent Calendar

October is upon us! Which means only one thing… it’s almost Halloween! Our new Haunted House Advent Calendar adds even more excitement to the season as a way to count down the days until the big night of trick-or-treating. Today we are sharing three ways to use this unique embroidered Halloween calendar!

Before we begin, a little more info about our Haunted House Advent Calendar! This is the first Halloween calendar we’ve designed and we are super excited to use it this season. The calendar features 31 pockets for counting down to Halloween. We think of the countdown as starting at the door of the Haunted House and working up to the full moon that rises above. Each pocket is 2 to 3 inches deep. Most of the pockets are 1 inch wide with some going up to 2.5 inches wide. For the full details and to purchase your very own head to our website here!


Coral and Tusk Haunted House Halloween Advent Calendar.

Fill with treats and candy

Our personal favorite use for the Halloween calendar is to fill each pocket with a treat… and a trick! For treats: one piece of candy in each pocket fits perfectly. Choose some wrapped, bite-sized favorites to place in each pocket. For tricks try a couple of miniature games and practical jokes for lots of laughs! Make every night in October a time for trick-or-treating!

Count down the days

If 31 nights of candy and toys sounds like your own personal parenting nightmare, never fear! Another great way to use the Haunted House Advent Calendar is by placing numbers in each pocket to count down to Halloween. We cut orange paper, drew each number, and placed them in the pockets. You could also use one piece of paper or a fun object to move to each pocket as the days go by, ending at the full moon on October 31st.

Coral and Tusk Halloween Wall Hanging Decor.

Display as a wall hanging

The pockets on the Advent Calendar are subtle enough that they don’t need to be filled at all! The Haunted House can also be displayed as a wall hanging alongside your other Halloween decor. There are so many details stitched throughout the calendar, from little bats flying in the windows to a ghost-shaped door knocker, that the calendar can be enjoyed just as it is!
