I made these countdown blocks for the craft fair. They were a hit! So much so that I had orders for more! You can find a tutorial here if you want to tackle this craft. Mine are a little different - but I love them the same! Hubby cut and sanded the wood for me. Then I painted, mod podged, and put vinyl on the blocks. I used the black Stampin' Up! vinyl in my Cricut to create the numbers and words. A perfect gift for teachers, friends, co-workers... or in your own home to help little ones countdown to their big day. I used birthday countdown, days until Christmas, days until vacation, days until Daddy comes home, and a regular countdown on mine.
