A Week of Magic & Wonder: Day 6 | Disney Vacation Countdown Calendar
Hey there Echo Park friends and fans, Becki here. When it's time for a Disney vacation you have to count down the days until the fun begins, right? I know my kids always insist on some sort of a countdown before a family vacation.
I used the Magic & Wonder collection to create a count down calendar. One of the things I like about this calendar is that it can be reused for family vacations for years to come.
I created the countdown calendar on a standup frame. I put it on rings so that it's easy to flip to the next day. All the patterned paper for this project came from the Magic & Wonder 6x6 paper pad. I cut all of the numbers for the countdown calendar out of black cardstock and adhered them to the the calendar with foam adhesive.
I created each day of the 10 day countdown with a mixture of die cuts, patterned paper, and enamel dots. I added staples, buttons, and string to a few of the days. Each day is a little bit unique.
Throughout the countdown calendar I created few Mickey Mouse heads with enamel dots. I used a large dot for the head and two small dots for the ears. I created the Mickey Mouse heads with all 4 colors of enamel dots. I think it will be fun for the kids to find a few secret Mickey Mouse heads on a few of the days.
As the vacation day comes closer I know that there will be a LOT of smiles. I love the "smiles from ear to ear" sticker and thought it would be appropriate to embellish day three.
For the final day in the countdown calendar I added the "Let Our Magical Adventure Start Now" sticker. I thought this was the most fitting way to end the countdown.
I LOVE how this countdown calendar turned out!! I can't wait to use it for our family's Disney vacation! Thank you for stopping by the Echo Park blog today!
