What every zombie fan needs... a countdown to the apocalypse calendar!  It's actually meant for the drawers to be filled with treats and opened each day in December.   Wink 


Here are some of my favorite parts- A warning sign!  The moon glows in the dark.


Day 3 is a zombified Hugh Laurie (House MD)


Day 9 is a zombie photo booth image.


Day 15's image comes from The Walking Dead.


Day 18 is a graveyard.


Instead of a number 24, I made a homage to 28 Days Later.

Thanks!  I was thinking about needlefelting some zombie-related magnets, or doing something related to Zombieland's Rules of Survival.  Cheesy

Oh goodness!! This is way more fun than any advent calendar! Well, assuming that zombies don't actually show up at the end of it Smiley.

Great job!! All of the details are really fun to admire.

As a huge Walking Dead fan, I am totally in love with this advent calendar...I am afraid I would use it all year and freak people out when they came over...it would be fun to fill with eyeball candies, finger cookies, redhots, etc. and see what the reactions were!

I love all the details (especial Dr. House!!!)...and the gloomy forest

Thanks so much everyone!  Rockon, it started as an advent calendar kit.  Try looking for one of those, it will make the task much easier if you have a base to start with.

you could make like body part keychains (lucky zombie foot! haha I'm going to have to make one now! )  and necklaces with like guns or eyeballs or horror inspired charms or you could do poured epoxy pictures of zombies for charms too that match your drawers if you wanted to do something not sugary sweet Cheesy

This is one of the coolest things I've seen in a long time!   Shocked 

I work in an outdoors store and we sell Zombie ammo, for when the Apocalypse comes. lol  It's real ammo, too bad it's $$ or I'd send you an empty box. It's made by Hornady, you should check it out. ( even if just for laughs )

if anybody is a huge fan of zombies and doesn't know about it - AMC has a series call 'The Walking Dead' - and that show has a forum - http://www.walkingdeadforums.com/forum/ - you can find some pretty good zombie screen shots there too and print them if you have a color printer.  It's based on the Graphic Novel of the same name and if you goodle images for it - you could probably find some good pictures...
