Christmas Countdown

Can you believe we’ve made it half way through the week!  Why is it that time seems to fly in the month of December when there is so much to do to prepare for the holidays?  Counting down to Christmas was so fun as a kid and it’s still fun as an adult!  I want to share with you a quick and easy craft that will help everyone get in the Christmas spirit.

Christmas Countdown Supplies

Step 1: Take the glass out of the frame and spray paint it outside with chalkboard spray paint.  Let dry.

Step 2: After the glass is completely dry, write your countdown message with your chalkboard marker.

Step 3: Cut 2 strips of burlap and 1 strip of fabric about 1 inch wide and 18 inches long.  For each strip, twist it and coil it as you go making a flower.  I explained how to make this in better detail here.

So quick and easy, right?  See Monday’s post where Alisa shared another way to countdown to Christmas with an Advent Calendar .

P.S. *Don’t mind the 38 days until Christmas…I took these pics back in November!

 

Have a great day!
