christmas candy countdown with free printables

this posted last year at design dazzle… christmas candy countdown with leftover halloween candy

and  i wanted to put it up here before dec 1 started so you have time to whip one out for your kids!

There is nothing thing we love more around these parts than fun ways to countdown for christmas!

this year….while we were swimming in halloween candy we decided to put together individual christmas candy countdowns

christmas countdown using candy and tulle

i used tulle–(SO CHEAP!) you need about half a yard..and if you use a coupon you are getting it for like 50 cents!!! IMG_3501

I just cut a 8 inch wide by how ever long the tulle is from the store (if you are using big candies you might need to tie two pieces of tulle together to get a really long piece)

you place a candy in the middle and tie off the tops and bottom (same process i used HERE for my bubblegum necklaces)

 i used bakers twine, green tulle, and ribbon…so use whatever you have laying around! christmas advent

i made some printables to help countdown

christmas countdown printables just punch a hole and attach

your kids can snip off a piece of candy for everyday!

and instead of snipping you can just slid the piece of candy out!

christmas candy countdown really cute and easy! my 10 year old and 7 year old put their’s together no problem. the 5 year old would put the candy in as i tied the knots!!! so go try it!!!!
