I've seen quite a few cute countdown boards lately. I'm sure these are particular fun for kids counting down to a birthday or holiday, but I thought our house needed one too!
I found a nice little sign at Goodwill for $0.49, I think it was originally for halloween as I could faintly make out the words EEK, but it had already been painted solid black.
I painted the back side with Chalkboard paint (just to ensure a nice smooth surface for writing) and used my Silhouette to apply white vinyl.
Wouldn't it be cute in the center of a holiday wreath? Add a festive ribbon and you can use it for any occassion. Now I just have to remember to update the countdown everyday!
