Counting down til Christmas!

Ok.....Soon it will be time to countdown til Christmas! So I made this cool project for the Posh Designs team. I took a clear picture frame from the store. (the kind where the pic just slides in).
First I had hubby drill 4 holes in the top for the rings to go through. Next I painted the sides of the frame and the edges of the numbers. Grabbed some stuff to embelish with and got busy!
for the numbers I used acrylic paper. They are 2 inches wide by 3 inches long. I think that regular transperency paper would work also.
I did a little stamping on the frame to begin with. Staz-on ink will work well for this. After I was done stamping I just started decorating. When I was done this is what I had! A great contdown to Christmas decoration. I think I will be making one that I can use the whole year.


  1. clever idea stacy! I might have to try that one!

  2. soo cute, glad i got to see this is person!!

  3. Very pretty. I love the way the white painted edge looks like snow in a window.

  4. I love this!! Such a creative project, I really like all the stamping!

  5. Stacy!! That ROCKS!! I am having Pink Christmas this year (yes, i know, i've said this 10,000 times), so I can't use my other traditional advent/countdown thing. This would be wonderful to make in pink!! do you want to make me one? ok, sorry. i overstep sometimes!!
