MOSD Christmas Countdown

It's the 25th of the month and that means it's time for my Midnight Oil Scrapbook Designs project! Today, I have a Christmas Countdown Wall Hanging to show you. The wall hanging is made from the acrylic cover of a MOSD Big Boy album, which is 6x12. (If you click on the photos you can see a larger image.)

I made this so that you can use the numbers for an Advent calendar, as a Christmas countdown, or simply to show each date in December! The left number set has zero through 3 and the right set has zero through 9. But you could make them in any combo you like. (I used the MOSD Cute Petite mini album for the numbers. This little album measures 2x2.) I covered each square with red Bazzill, and then edged them with white paint. I used MOSD Stick-On numbers for each small square, and hung the number squares from the acrylic panel with MOSD clear binding rings.

I then painted the edges of the Big Boy cover with white acrylic paint (Ranger paint dabber). Next, I cut a piece of Dream Street printed paper to 5.5x11.5 to use for the background. I decorated the background with more Dream Street and K&Company papers, MOSD letter Stick-Ons (in white, to spell "December"), and a calendar printed from the computer.

I used the Dahlia Spellbinders dies to cut the flower accent and some EK Success snow flake punches to add some snowflake accents. The border is punched with the Martha Stewart doily punch. There is also some bling scattered about in the form of rhinestones.

That yummy ribbon is Stampin' Up. You get a ton of ribbon on the rolls so it's a GREAT value! Once I had the whole background assembled, I attached it to the clear acrylic cover, then punched holes into the acrylic and added white eyelets. I did that so I could hang my numbers and my ribbon. It just gives the project a finished look. I used the Crop-a-Dile to punch through the acrylic cover and the chipboard squares.

You can make these wall hangings in any color scheme or style. They make a fantastic accent for a wall in your home or in your office at work. I hope you have fun visiting me today!
