Easy Christmas Countdown Banner

Coundown Banner

I haven’t hung this up yet since I haven’t decided where it’s going but thought I’d share this quick Christmas Countdown banner.

Once again, I fell in love with a paper stack. It’s an illness. I accept  I have it.

Joyful Christmas

This time it was “Joyful Christmas” by Recollections at Michaels. Lots of vintagey goodness with some sheets full of glitter accents. Yum.

You can see how easy they made it to make this banner since there are a couple of countdown sheets in the stack. I just cut each one out and mounted onto a black panel.

Countdown Numbers

I had these brads in my stash from after Christmas shopping last year:

Recollections Brads

Connected the corners using the brads but decided that 1-25 all together would be way too long so I did 1-12, 12-24 and then 25 as a standalone.

Framed "25" with a silver glitter scrap and snowflake brads. Used black and white bakers twine to finish things off.

I have got to get that paper stack. I love Recollections papers. I must have over looked that stack at Michaels last night doggone it. They had the stacks for half off also. Ah well you snooze you lose but there'll be other sales and coupons.
I did get the cinnamon fragranced pine cones for $1.99 regularly $4.99, bought one bag of plain cones and one with cones painted white with gold, yummm they smell so good in the house (in case doggy smell is taking over).
Just had a little money, don't get paid til 28th., so that took care of my black friday shopping in a hurry.
Love how you put the banner together, very pretty. Thanks for the inspiration.
