Here’s a fun way to make a countdown from wood slices to some special event that’s coming up!  Maybe a holiday, or someone coming to visit. Maybe its a long awaited vacation or days till you buy that special something you’ve been saving for. And of course the kids always count the days until school is out.  Whatever the occasion this little countdown is a fun way to keep track of the time until it happens! It’s a lovely small piece that can sit anywhere to remind you of the wonderful things in your future. blank111

Make a Countdown For All Occasions!

Decorate your countdown however you like to match the occasion. I made a general one for any occasion and then one for the Christmas holidays.  Make sure to put on TWO coats of chalkboard paint, allowing it to dry in between. It’s best to let the last coat dry overnight before use.

These little wood slice items prove that countdowns are NOT just for Christmas! You can use them for any occasion you’re looking forward too. It could be someone special coming to visit. Maybe it’s another type of holiday that you especially love. Or the days until school is out! You can make them in any theme you want.
