I use my same "Thankful" frame, only this time I hang the countdown.
Pretty easy...just some scrapbook paper & a little distressing ink.
Now the Advent Calendar:
This is my version of the Dollar Store cookie sheet. I painted it, Mod Podged some paper. Then I made a grid--one rectangle per day and labeled the date--just like a calendar.
I used various Christmas items--stickers, chipboard, ornaments--anything I could find that was about the right size. Simply add a little magnet, then each day my kids take turns picking the item to go on the calendar for that day.
It won't be long and this will all be full! Christmas will be here before we know it!
Happy Countdown to Christmas!
