Ginger Snap Crafts: festive friday {christmas countdown}

festive friday {christmas countdown}

I shared this last week over at Johnny in a Dress.
Buuut just in case you missed it over there,
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! :)
