How Many Days Till Christmas?

I don't want to know, do you?

But I did make this cute little countdown till Christmas piece.

One of my thrift store finds. Remember these old pull toys? I think they used to be filled with blocks.
Well I found this one for less then a buck!
When I found it I did not know what I would do with it, but I knew I could do something with it!

So when CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) approached and I needed to do some samples for Cosmo Cricket, I dug this out of my stash.

With the new Christmas line called Jolly Days from Cosmo Cricket I thought I could do some kind of Christmas decor. So this is what I did........................................
So Easy and fast! Cut papers to size add a Ready Set Chip snowman and some tim Holtz letters and a blackboard painted block, hang a piece of chalk off of the wheel and you have a countdown calender. I think I am going to add some more Ready Set Chip figures to this now that I have more to add. You can hang this piece or leave it where the kids can help you change the days.

Have a great & safe Holiday weekend!

Ouu! I LOVE this idea!

I think my nieces need one! Though I think I'm going to have to use something slightly less awesome than your pull toy! :)
