Welcome to day 5 of my 25 Days of Craftmas series!  I’ve already shared 4 different Christmas Countdown projects that you can make with your cutter.  If you missed the previous projects, you can see day 1 here, day 2 hereday 3 here, and day 4 here.  We’re nearly done with the coundown projects, just 2 left to share.  Today I’m sharing my FAVORITE and tomorrow I’ll be sharing my kid’s favorite.

I found the laser cut wood ornaments while browsing for some supplies and thought they were too cute not to buy.  So, I incorporated them into a countdown sign and I just LOVE how it turned out. It’s totally my style and I’m excited to share it today.

While the glue is drying, start painting the wood ornaments.  Paint the aqua first, you only need to paint the circle, not the part above. Paint the fronts and backs of 13 ornamentsCountdown the days until Christmas arrives with this easy to do project. #christmassvg #christmascountdown #silhouette #cricut

Then, add a piece of painters tape across the top of the circle

The wood glue should be dry, so you can also paint the wood block white.

While you’re waiting for everything to dry, you can cut out the vinyl.  The numbers should be 2.5″ x 2.5″ and the design should be about 5.4″ x 5.4″.

Do you need help cutting this multi-color design?  Check out this step by step tutorial for Silhouette Users here and for Circut Users here.

Start by applying the number 25 to one side of an ornament.  Remove the transfer tape and flip it over.

Add the number 24 to the other side.  Repeat with all the numbers down to 0.

Position the wood ornament on the block.  Place a nail inside the circle of the ornament and hammer into place.Countdown the days until Christmas arrives with this easy to do project. #christmassvg #christmascountdown #silhouette #cricut

Trim down the vinyl bow so it fits right above the nail and adhere to the wood block.

Temporarily remove the nail on the front of the block and flip the block over.  Place two ornaments on the back and add nails like you did on the front.  This is where you can store all the numbers that aren’t being used.  Isn’t that clever!

Replace the nail on the front and add a cute Christmas bow around the knob.
