Countdown to Valentines

As I got to thinking what I wanted to make for Valentine's this year I remembered my 
Countdown that I made for Christmas and thought it would be fun to do a 
Countdown to Valentines. It is something my kiddos would really enjoy doing too. 
So I went on Pinterest to see if anyone else had done
something like this and to get ideas. 
I really liked the one I saw HERE at Infarrantly Creative so I made something similar to it.

Here is my Countdown To Kisses:


How I Made It:

I contemplated for awhile on how I wanted to make this. I had several ideas running
through my head. Even on the way to the craft store to get supplies I really
didn't know what I was going to do. As I was talking with my hubby on the way there I
had huge thought come to me. I was at Joann's a few weeks ago and went
down an isle just to check it out. I came upon the cutest magnet boards.
I fell in love with them the minute I saw them, but didn't know what I would use it for.
This thought made everything clear. I would use that magnet board! Funny how things work out!


I chose the color red because of course its a Valentines color!
Isn't it so cute?!?


After I got the magnet board I went over the Michael's and picked up some cute black and white bottle caps. I got 14 of them. These are for the numbers to go on. I also grabbed 14 round magnets that I had on hand at home.


Next, I got on my Circut and designed how I wanted the wording to be. When I got that figured out I cut out the words "Countdown to Kisses" with some hearts in white vinyl. Then I designed the numbers to fit the bottle caps. I cut those out in red vinyl.


Then I took the Countdown wording and transferred that to the magnet board.


Next, I hot glued the magnets to the bottle caps. I could have skipped this step because after all the bottle caps are magnetic so the magnets would stick on there own, but lets be honest the kids are going to be doing this so I don't want them to play with them!


Lastly, I transferred the red numbers to all the bottle caps and stuck those to the board.


This was a super easy and quick project, but it turned out
 better then I pictured to begin with!!




I can't wait until Friday to start counting down the days until Valentines!!
