Large Christmas Countdown Blocks

Welcome to my blog! Here is another craft that was done at our Super Saturday. 
What I liked about these Christmas Countdown blocks is that they are large. The blocks are made from 4x4's and the base is made from a 2x6. All papers were cut slightly smaller than the blocks, and the edges were inked. The papers were mod podged on to the blocks, then the numbers, then a top layer of mod podge. It is important to wait twenty minutes between layers to prevent bubbling. The numbers were cut from a Cricut, and I used the cartridge "A Child's Year", size 3. 
Block 1 needs numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.  
Block 2 needs numbers 0, 1, 2, 6, 7, 8. 
The six works as a 9 as well. 
The Christmas Countdown label was laser photocopied onto ivory paper and mod podged on to the painted base. I used the font "Impervious".

Stable Foundation Free Download

In my previous blog post, I showed a picture of a Christmas craft I made at a Super Saturday at my church. I had a lot of requests for the file. Unfortunately it is not my file to give. Although this is not as nice as my friend had made, I am posting this image as an option for a free download. I have also asked my daughter to draw one for me (she is an awesome artist) so I can make some more gifts. When she finishes this project, I will post that one. I promise it will be awesome!!
Right click on image, open image in new window. Copy and paste to desired publishing program. Resize as desired, print.

All Families Need a Stable Foundation

Hello! With the first week of November slipping away quickly I thought I would do my first Christmas post. I was helping to organize a Christmas craft day for the women's group at my church and this was one of my favorite projects. My friend made this image with her Creative Memories program, printed them off at Staples, and the only thing that needed to be done was paint  pre-cut plywood, and Mod Podge the picture on. The picture is 8x8. I loved this saying and my friend did a wonderful job at putting this project together. 

Thanks for stopping by!
