Valentine Countdown {#1}

Our kids love Countdowns.
When I found this inspiration & decided to make my own version, I was so excited to make it(and blog it).

With some leftover wood I had, I started with a board that measures 7 "x 11"x 1 1/2". I drilled 14 holes using a 1" wood boring bit. The washer helped as a guide for the hole placement.

I used a dremel to carve the numbers using the vinyl negative.

I painted the wood red then pink. After it was dry, I sanded the whole piece.

I had to paint the numbers brown (the carved #'s didn't work as well as they did in my head). Then on the sticker I added dimension with Glossy Accents.

If you don't want to see the drilled holes you could punch out 1" circles and attach them with glue dots. [I did brown paper for the chocolates that will go there]

These are the ones I did for the kids with vinyl #'s. The pink ones are for the girls and the red one is for our little man. You can buy the vinyl numbers here.

Fill the holes with Hershey kisses/hugs candies.

They get to eat a candy Kiss/Hug as they Countdown the days!
