Day 9~ The Christmas Countdown

23 Nov
Wow, day 9 already ~ we are over half way through “15 Days of Handmade Gifts”  I have a wonderful guest blogger today; Ginger from Ginger Snap Crafts.  She is going to show us how to make a really cute Christmas Countdown sign ~ a great gift for any family!
Today’s ad sponsor is LeBox Boutique, they have some really great crafting supplies ~ their craft boxes would be GREAT to decorate and make some beautiful Christmas packages (they are also participating in our giveaway on November 30th!!)
Le Box Boutique is home to The Original WASHI TAPE BY THE FOOT making it fun and affordable to use the many wonderful patterns of Japanese Washi Tape hand-rolled on reusable wooden spools! We specialize in recycled Kraft product/gift packaging design and supplies.
Visit this Etsy Shop here: LeBox Boutique
And now onto Ginger’s sweet tutorial:

Hi! I’m Ginger, & I blog over at Ginger Snap Crafts.
It’s a fun place where I share my easy, simple & cute crafty ideas & projects.
{Would love to have YOU drop by sometime!}
It’s such an honor to be over here on Lisa’s blog & with all of YOU!
Today I’d love to share my cute & easy way to do a Christmas {countdown}.

{Supplies Needed}
wood plaque*
scalloped circle chalkboard vinyl***
* I bought my wood plaque at Hobby Lobby for under $2.  Yay!
**I used Mr & Mrs Popsicle & His Name is Honey fonts for my vinyl.
***You could also use a stencil & chalkboard paint.
This is soooooo easy to make!  First you paint your plaque white.
Then drill two small holes along the top.
Apply your vinyl.  Then thread a festive ribbon through your holes & tie a bow.  All done!
Then use a piece of chalk or chalkboard pen to countdown to Christmas!
Yay! So fun, & your kiddos will love it! 🙂
Would love to have you over to Ginger Snap Crafts!
I’ve also have a fun link party on Wednesdays…would LOVE to see what you’re up to!

Thanks for having me over, Lisa!  I had a great time! 🙂
Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving & wonderful Christmas.
