Cookie Sheet Christmas Countdown

{p.s. do you like my new layout? I also have a NEW button, so be sure to grab it!! Thanks!}

I've seen some of these floating around online, so I'd thought I'd give it a try!!

You start with a plain old cookie sheet! You can use either the front or back ( I chose front) - spray paint it!

To cover it, I used fabric- because I liked my fabric choices better than any paper I had. Paper works wonderfully too tho!!

I mod podged it on...

I left a little space at the top to add in some contrasting red fabric!

Then comes the fun part- making the magnets! You can use whatever you'd like- buttons, bottle caps, ornaments, paper, anything. I added the numbers in with a mixture of stickers, ink, and rub-ons.
This is your time to get creative!
I also added in a calendar template- which I made in Word. All you have to do is find the Tables button & make it 5 x 5.

Gorilla glue some ribbons on for decor and hanging, and there you have it! A one of a kind Advent calendar!



  1. WOW! This is super cool! Thanks for the awesome idea!

  2. So cute!... I'll have to remember it when my Christmas countdown breaks down. P.s. I think you need to post the recipe for those chocolate chip cream cheese cupcakes or whatever... I've been craving them!

    XOXO and lots of love,
