Magnetic Christmas Countdown Calendar

I have been seeing so many cool Christmas countdown calendars on Pinterest and love how unique they are.

When my kids were little, I always bought them the countdown calendars from the Christmas Tree Shoppe that were cardboard, and had a piece of chocolate behind each door.  

Well this is a grown-up Christmas countdown calendar that you can easily display in your kitchen, or anywhere really.

Here is what I used to make it:



Place the Christmas Countdown Transfer onto the metal board ensuring it is evenly placed.

Choose the colors you would like to use. I chose classic red and green for the main Christmas Countdown text and pine images.

For the numbers, I went with a solid black, to ensure that they would show up on the metal board.

For the piece to use for the countdown, I had a small wood slice that I added a little pine image to.

As the board is magnetic, I hot glued a magnet to the back of it. It’s the perfect size to countdown the days until Christmas!

To finish it off, I hot glued greens and a buffalo plaid bow to the top.

The metal board along with the buffalo check ribbon gives it a farmhouse look that goes perfectly in my newly updated kitchen that you can see here.

I hung this cute advent calendar in my entry and my daughter counts down the days when she gets home from work, because even 22 yo’s get excited for Christmas!
