Have you seen the Snowman Christmas Countdowns made of wood? They’re all over Pinterest and Facebook. I think they are the sweetest little things! But I didn’t have any wood and the kids and I wanted to make something while they were off from school. It was Black Friday and I wasn’t braving the stores. Instead we decided to make our own, out of supplies we had on hand! Below I share a tutorial for how we made our DIY Snowman Christmas Countdown. I also made a printable version to make it even easier for you to make this Christmas Countdown.
