5 Ways to Countdown an Event

Welcome to “5 Ways Saturdays.”   Today topic is crafting a countdown calendar.

I have had countdowns on the brain.   After seeing how my kids have adored their Dollar Store Advent Calendar and the Countdown to Kisses I have been looking for more ways to countdown numerous upcoming events and holidays.

Lindsey from Mom & Wife repurposed a shot glass shadowbox into a birthday countdown for her daughter.

Brooke from Inchmark made this countdown calendar filled with photos for her grandma.   What a perfect gift for grandparents…what more do they want than pictures of their grandbabies?


Julie from Joy’s Hope guest posted here on IC and showed us how to make a “Days Until” sign.   I love how she was counting down the day to the Dave Matthews concert. 🙂

Mandy from Sugar Bee Craft Edition made this adorable Mickey Mouse garland to countdown…you guessed it…how many days until their Disney vacation.countdown to disney vacation

Countdown with a colorful Caterpillar made with strips of paper and some embellishments from Parents.com.
