Christmas time is here and so is the time to do some Christmas Crafts, gifts, and have fun!!! Here is super cute craft I found over at (Little Birdie Secrets)!


Items you will need:
2- 4x4x4 blocks
1- 2x4x8
Paint brush
Christmas Scrapbooking Paper
Vinyl or Rub On Letters of Numbers & Word "countdown"
Mod Podge

* The Numbers you will need for the blocks are:
Block 1: 0,1,2,3,4,5
Block 2: 0, 1,2,6,7,8

I don't have pictures of the step by step of this project but I will describe step by step of what to do.

Step 1: Sand your 3 blocks of wood... Paint all 3 blocks. You can paint them all the same or paint them different. On mine I painted the 2 blocks for the numbers cream and the bottom block a green grass color.

Step 2: While your blocks dry. Cut out your scrapbooking paper to fit on your blocks. I left a small border around the edge so you can see the block. You will need 6 squares for the 2 blocks with numbers and 1 long rectangle for the block with "countdown".

Step 3: Take your Vinyl or Rub on lettering and numbers and put them on the squares...making sure to keep the right numbers for the right block.

Step 4: Your other blocks should be dry. You can sand the edges a bit if you would like or just leave them. Paint a thin layer of mod podge on one side of the block and place a square with the number on it on the block. Be sure to press firmly and keep the air bubbles out. Continue to do this on 5 of the sides of each block..and on the countdown block as well!

Step 5: Then paint a healthy layer... (Not super thin but not really thick either) over the squares of scrapbooking paper with your numbers. Set the block somewhere to dry. I let mine dry for at least 12 hours before doing the last number on the bottom.

Step 6: Let everything dry very well before stacking them! You will then have a super easy super fun countdown to set somewhere in your home!! ENJOY :)
