I found a box of these wood cubes in a set of 9 on clearance at Hobby Lobby a while back. I've been waiting for the perfect project so that I could finally use them. I got a special order for these countdown blocks a couple weeks ago, and I got busy paper crafting!
The little base I found at hobby Lobby as well. They are 2/$1 and just the right size to hold two blocks.
I cut the paper squares to fit the sides of the wood cubes and mod podged them on. Then I used my cricut to cut out the numbers, but you could use stickers or rub-on numbers for this too. Then give all sides of the blocks a couple coats of mod podge to seal them and you're good to go. You can paint the base any color to match the papers you chose. You could also make these to use year round and use the colors of your decor...cute!
I wanted to let everyone know I have decided to extend my holiday sale on Etsy until this Saturday December 5th. The pictures above and below are just a few examples of some of the custom orders I've done lately. You can browse the current inventory in my shop, look at the sold orders section for past inventory, or if you have a special request...let me know...we'll work on creating a custom order together!
And just a reminder......new customers will receive 15% off their order of $20 or more and returning customers will receive 10% off their order of $20 or more! That's a great deal. If you have any last minute gifts to buy or have someone to buy for who has everything else...now is your chance. You have 5 days to order at this discounted price and just enough time to get it in time Christmas!
