Halloween Candy Christmas Countdown

Mommas! I am trying to hang in there, I am trying to keep fighting the good fight, but I am SOOOOOO over it! I am over the big jar of Halloween candy and the never ending battle for “just one more piece” every moment of every day! What can we do to regulate the candy intake and remove the jar of temptation from the kitchen counter?!
I may not be a genius about a lot of things, but girls, I think I hit the jackpot with this one!

Let’s turn the candy into a
countdown wreath!

For our house, our wreath will be a countdown until the day Mistletoe (our Elf on the Shelf) comes back! (Now, not everybody does Elf on the Shelf, which is totally okay, maybe yours is a countdown to Thanksgiving Turkey!) Tally up the number of days in your countdown and voila! That’s the number of pieces of candy you need – one piece for each day! This eliminates the battle for more candy than we want them to have and also moves the candy out of the jar and into a cute edible display piece!

Check out my tutorial video below to see how I put ours together!
