Christmas Countdown Project

My kids love to count the days 'til Christmas, which we start doing right after Thanksgiving here in the States. The DIY Shop frames and the Be Merry collection were a perfect pairing for a Christmas Countdown DIY project. 

How to: Cut an 8.5"x8.5" block of wood and paint it black. Distress the edges. Cut your background paper to 8"x8" and adhere to the wood block using ModPodge or the adhesive of your choice.  Apply glitter tape around the border of the paper to serve as a frame.  Next, add a colored frame from the DIY Shop collection and embellish around the frame with die cuts.  Cut the words "Days 'til Christmas" in a bold color that will stand out against your background paper. I cut my words to fit into a 3"x6" space. Last but not least, start your daily countdown and enjoy!

Supplies: DIY Shop collection: 369012 Color Framed Boards, 369056 Gold Glitter Tape; Be Merry Collection: 368920 Candy Cane Lane Paper, 368931 Cardstock Die Cuts
