With that said, I think this is such a unique idea - especially if you don't want to put something on your wall and then have to take it down after the holidays and destroy it. I used the small 'Christmas Countdown' from the Decor Elements line and adhered it onto a pretty vanilla colored stoneware oval platter found at Home Goods (my FAVORITE store in the world!). I embellished with some red Little Felt Flurries snowflakes, red & white ticking grosgrain ribbon, rhinestone brads and glitter. For the individual numbered cards, I used Naturals Ivory Card Stock to mount the numbers on, and then backed each card with Real Red and Old Olive Card Stock. I decorated each number with a little piece of 'bling' and then attached the number card to the platter with a mini library clip ... whala! My plan is to string some more of that pretty ticking ribbon from end to end on a bank of 3 windows I have in my kitchen, and then each day pull the appropriate numbered card off the string and put it on the plate. I can re-use this holiday decoration for years to come. What do you think???
