Really any kind of countdown design will work great. You can look around and find several online. You could also drawn on your own design with the chalk markers however when you go to erase the date every day you run the risk of erasing your design too.
How to make your DIY Christmas Countdown Chalkboard
You’ll start by applying the decals. (If you don’t know how to apply a decal check out this tutorial) My decals come in 5 separate pieces. You will apply them in this order:
1: White Ornament
2: Green Leaves
3: Red Bow
4: Red Berries
5: White Wording
You can measure from top to bottom and from right to left to get the design centered just right or you can eyeball it. It’s pretty easy to align once you have the ornament put in place. Check out the video above to see how it all comes together.
After you have your decal in place simply use your chalk or chalk marker and write in how many days are left until Christmas. Hang your chalk board or fold out the legs and place it on a table top. That’s it…you’re all done. Easy peasy and super cute!
