Looking for a fun way to countdown to your big day? Look no further, we have the prettiest DIY Post: Wedding Countdown you’ve ever laid eyes on! For those of you who aren’t super crafty, don’t worry, this DIY project is a breeze and can be custom made to match your wedding colors or theme! Plus it’s a great excuse to always have fresh flowers in the house (or to receive from that fiance of yours!) and makes a great gift too! Let the countdown begin!
- (1) Large Mason Jar
- (1) Medium sized block/piece of wood
- Small container (2 oz) of Chalkboard Paint
- (2) Small containers (2 oz) of Acrylic Paint (feel free to use your wedding colors!)
- (1) Small Frame (we found this one in the Dollar section at Michaels!)
- Twine (optional)
1.) Gather all of your supplies and lay down some newspaper/drop cloth in your work space area.
2.) Paint the Wood Block with your first color on all 4 sides. Set aside to dry.
3.) Paint a small box with the Chalkboard paint on the front side of your block (this is where the text will be). Allow to completely dry.
4.) Using your second Acrylic color, paint the outside of the Mason Jar completely covering it. You may need to do a few coats so it’s no longer see-through. Set aside and allow to dry.
5.) Once the paint has dried on the Mason Jar, paint a large shape (we chose a heart!) on the front of the jar with the chalkboard paint. Under the shape using the Chalkboard paint, write the phrase “Days Until” (or shorten it to “Days ’til” like us).
6.) Once all the pieces have dried, assemble the mason jar and the frame on top of the wooden block. To make sure we didn’t lose the chalk, we tied some twine to the chalk and to the jar so it’s always within reach!
7.) Personalize your Countdown! In chalk, write on the Chalkboard Paint the number of days until the big day and stick a sweet picture of you and your fiance in the frame! Don’t forget to add some flowers to your new Mason Jar vase!
The best part is, you can use it again after the big day! So many exciting life moments to countdown to, the options are endless!
