‘Tis the season to start counting down the days until the big man in red comes sliding down our chimneys. What better way to get your family in the Christmas spirit than with this adorable DIY Christmas Countdown Sign? I love the way this countdown sign turned out, and it was so easy to make using my Cricut, some vinyl and just a few other supplies.

Notes:

If you would like to create an ombre look for your number tree, look at the preview screen in Cricut Design Space, and place your vinyl on your mat in the areas where you would like different colors. (There is a screenshot of this for your reference.)

Be sure to use premium vinyl on this piece to make it last through the years.

This would make a great family gift!
