**Click HERE for a more recent candy countdown tutorial
Well, for a couple years now, I've been wanting to make the kiddos their own Valentine's Day
Advent count down calendar. I FINALLY found the right supplies, for the right $$ though I'm still tweaking it, and I will probably change it next year. I just wanted to post this in case someone wanted to make one for their fam.
Ok That being said let's get busy, making this easy calendar
So you start with a plastic heart from Wally-world, or anywhere else you can find one for a decent price. I paid $1.50
So now, just hot glue these lil hearts to the big one, in whatever random fashion you'd like
Now, it'd be handy if you had a cricut, and could cut out some cute little numbers, but alas mine DIED after I cut out one calendars worth. (sniff) (I just got to start playing when the cutter crapped out) : /
EDITED TO SAY: That hot glue on this project is NOT THE BEST CHOICE, I've come to think that little permanent foam squares would be a better option, as the plastic flexes too much for the glue.
Happy Valentine's Day
****ALSO edited to apologize for my loose lips calling this calendar an ADVENT calendar! YIKES! I even know better! Hope I didn't offend anyone with that! Enjoy this Valentine's COUNT DOWN calendar! :)
