Christmas Countdown

This is one of those projects that I have worked on and off of for over a month. I cannot believe I did not take more pics but since it was one of those projects I kept putting down, it just didn't happen. I first found this idea on pinterest and told Mr. C about it, who was sweet enough to cut me 16 inch wood rounds, he also primed them for me. I than drew a square that I painted with chalkboard paint. The back of the round as well as the sides were painted black.

I than modpoged holiday scrapbook paper onto the round (sorry no pic) and than started working with my Cameo, this is the first project I have done with it. So glad I bought the cheap vinyl to practice with as I went through several before I got the size right!

Once the vinyl was done, I found these buttons to add for decoration but they looked boring..

I took my jute and laced them, so they were ready to be placed.

Around the chalkboard square it needed something so I added a strand of the jute and than to each corner the buttons were hot glued on.

At the very top I added a bow made from burlap ribbon, just a little something. I am pleased with it and will make another, I hope next time since I now kinda know what I am doing it will not take as long! Now I need to find an easel!

Thanks for stopping by!!

What a fun Christmas countdown. I find that the first one always take much longer than anymore you decide to make. Just figuring it out takes time. Thanks for sharing it with Share Your Cup.
