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:
- Metal Magnetic Memo Board 18”x24”
- Christmas Countdown
- Chalk Paste Candy Apple
- Chalk Paste Black Velvet
- Chalk Paste – Green Envy
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 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! I hope you will visit the other bloggers participating below.
