Christmas Countdown Chalkboard

Keep track of the days until Christmas with this homemade chalkboard countdown the kids will adore.

What You'll Need:

  • Small hanging chalkboard (you can purchase at a craft store)
  • Craft paint in holiday colors & small paint brushes
  • -or- printed graphic created on computer (sized to fit chalkboard)  & decoupage glue
  • White chalk
  • Decorative bow (optional)

Simple Instructions:

You can make this cute chalkboard two different ways.

1) Use paint (and a stencil if you like) to paint a message on the chalkboard, leaving the area for the number of days blank. This will be filled in with chalk.

2) Another option is to print out a graphic from your computer on a black background and size it to fit your chalkboard. Appy the graphic to the board using decoupage glue (i.e. Mod Podge) and cover the graphic completely with the glue to add shine. Let dry completely. Be sure to leave a cutout where the chalkboard will show through where the number of days can be written with chalk.

Tie or glue a decorative bow to the top of the board. A perfect holiday hostess gift!
