Awhile back, I wanted to make a project using a 1×2, but I had to buy a piece much longer than I needed. So since then, I’ve been trying to make little projects here and there to use it up! And this Christmas Countdown was super quick to make and I love how it looks sitting on our bookshelf!
weeding tool, scraper, transfer tape
1×2 piece of wood cut to desired length (mine are 8 inches and 10 inches)
acrylic or spray paint
I painted each block with a few coats of acrylic paint. While it was drying, I created my design in Silhouette Studio and cut everything out of vinyl. The black vinyl is actually chalkboard vinyl! So I’ve been using a bistro chalk marker to change the number of days left.
I have a really great tutorial HERE that explains step by step how to apply the vinyl.
I love how this is another fun project that can be customized with different colors, fonts, even adding a Santa or Christmas tree to this would be super cute!
