Can you believe how quickly the holidays are approaching? Thanksgiving is a week away and Christmas is just around the corner. My kids love counting down to Christmas and to Santa’s visit. I decided to make them a way to officially keep track this year. I made a Christmas Countdown.
I picked up my laser frame on clearance at Michael’s. It was on sale for $0.68 for a pack of two! Umm…good deal! They usually have them year round, but not always at such a great price.
If your laser cut frame is like mine, it has really dark edges. I didn’t want those edges to show and since I was using silver paint, I felt like it was necessary to start by painting the frame with white craft paint. I felt like it was necessary so the silver would really show.
Voila! Easy and pretty Christmas countdown. It was an easy craft but it did take some time due to all the coats of paint. I’m using a chalkboard makerwith my frame so the writing shows up really well.
Can you believe there are only 35 days left until Christmas? Let’s all take a collective deep breath now and try not to stress but enjoy the season. Fingers crossed we can do just that. 🙂
