I love the Christmas season and everything that goes with it. When December 1st rolls around, I anxiously countdown the days until Santa comes and this year I created a fun DIY piece to make the countdown more fun.
This was an easy and quick DIY project and would be a great one to get the kids involved in creating.Supplies needed: Clear plastic boxes from Hobby Lobby Assorted holiday themed scrapbook papers Chalkboard Stickers (Target $1.00 section) Double Sided Tape and Foam Mounting Tape Scissors and Ruler or Cutting Board
Simply cut your scrapbook paper in 4″ squares to fit each side of your plastic box. I used 4 different paper designs so there could be a different pattern on each side of my box.
Using your double-sided tape, attach the paper squares to the block.
Next you’ll want to layer on your numbers, using numbers 0,1,2,3,4,5. One of the paper styles I used featured blocks with different numbers on them and I cut out specific numbers to use as my number tiles. I also used the chalkboard stickers as number tiles.
Use the foam tape to layer decorative paper under your number tiles to give your blocks some dimension.
Each side of the two blocks features a single number which allows you to pair them together to countdown from 25 to 1!
When I finished making my Christmas Countdown Blocks I couldn’t help but smile at the finished project. I absolutely love how it turned out!
The only downside of countdown blocks is a reminder of how much I have to get done before Christmas :)
