Thankful Thanksgiving Countdown with Silhouette {Advent Calendar tutorial}

This post is brought to you by Silhouette.

Thanksgiving is almost here! Eek! Wasn’t it just summer time? ha! I really do love the holidays though, and I’m so excited for Thanksgiving & then Christmas to come along! My kiddos always love counting down to the holidays. Today I’d love to show you how I made this easy Thankful Thanksgiving Countdown using a Silhouette Advent Calendar frame. Keep reading to see how I did it. 🙂

Thanksgiving Countdown with Silhouette #advent #countdown #thanksgiving #ad

For this project you’ll need:
Silhouette Advent Calendar
numbered place cards
fall scrapbook paper
leaf clipart from the Silhouette online store
chalkboard vinyl
chalk or chalk marker

First I used my Cameo to cut fall leaves out of scrapbook paper. The CAMEO can cut so many different things ~ vinyl, paper, chipboard, material, stamping material & so much more. I love mine! 🙂 (Make sure you check out over 20 of my favorite Silhouette projects.)

Then I cut some chalkboard vinyl into rectangles & applied them to the back of my numbered cards. (You can see my how to cut & apply vinyl tutorial here.)

I love this advent calendar. It has clips & wires all ready for you! So I just clipped on my leaves & cards ~ 1 through 14 ~ onto my advent calendar.

Now for the two weeks leading up to Thanksgiving we can take one card off & write what we are thankful for on it each day. Then flip it over & hang it back on our calendar.
