One of our favorite films is Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” which is a perfect blend of spooky Halloween and Christmas spirit. In Halloween Town, they have this great countdown clock which counts down the days until Halloween. What a perfect Halloween DIY project!

In addition to showing how easy this DIY Halloween prop is to make, we’ve created plans and templates so that you can follow along with the build, whether you’re using cardboard, foam, wood, or whatever, you should be able to grab the plans and make your own! If you’re looking for a fun weekend project to upgrade your Halloween (or Christmas!) decorations, this DIY project will be a lot of fun.
