I made this for the Mini 12 Days of Christmas Swap. It was one of the large items. I've never made anything like this and while I've dabbled a bit in some paper projects, this was a large undertaking! It's also deceptively simple. Took me the better part of a month to complete it between experimenting, finding supplies and generally figuring out what the heck to do to make it! Grin But I really like how it came out.



Detail shots....










It took A LOT of supplies. Most I had to buy when I realized I didn't have what I needed. I picked up a cheap cookie sheet at Wal-Mart (purposefully, since spray paint doesn't adhere to the non-stick ones) and then did a few light coats of white spray paint just to give it a base. I used an assortment of scrapbook papers and ribbon using spray adhesive and regular craft glue as the base. Next, I bought some chipboard Christmas pieces from the scrapbook section and adhered them to round magnets. I bought some number stamps and stamped out the dates and glued those to the chipboard. I made sure each day was different and I spent some some arranging them so any similar ones were spread away from each other a bit. I added a 3D "Merry Christmas" paper cutout sticker and holly. I finished it with part of a wire coat hanger which was wrapped in a tinsel type length of wire cord and a green bow.

I looked at images of ones online for inspiration but it didn't prepare me for how much work it was! Grin Still, I was really pleased with how it came out in the end and after investing so much time, thought and love into, I was a little sad to see it go. Hopefully, my partner enjoys it and has fun using the countdown each year.

As always, thoughts welcome!
