Simple Magnetic Christmas Countdowns

 December is almost here. I can't believe it.
  Make yourself a fun and cute, yet simple countdown to Christmas. 
I love this one......I am giving this away as a gift this year......early so they can use it all December.  Make yourself one, it's simple.  I made this with the following supplies:
scrapbook paper (the manger and the #'s 1 - 25) Can't get any more simple
Piece if sheet metal (found this for 50 cents)
Mod podge
magnets (with a sticky back)
After you mod podge the paper to the sheet metal, cut out your numbers and add the magnets to the back.  Punch holes at the top and hang with a ribbon.  The great thing is you can put the numbers on the back as you count down. These make great gifts!!
Want a different version?!?!
Here is my Advent that I made for my family last year.

What a cute advent calendar! I like to collect nativities in all forms, so having an advent nativity would be perfect. I might have to try to make this, soon!

Cute idea! I like how easy it would be to customize the calendar for a different look.
