Valentine countdown

Welcome to day one of my Valentine countdown.  Today we are going to make a countdown calendar for Valentine's day.  I started with an old wire tray from Pottery Barn.  I spray painted it red...

next I added some decorative paper to some different sized clothespins.

For the countdown tags I used an old set of advent calendar numbers.  You could rubber stamp them, or ask your kids to draw them.  I laid the numbers out on my tray to see how much room I had for each tag.

Each day, pin a new little card on your countdown.  You could add little bags of candy or treats to the countdown.  The tags would be cute strung on some baker's twine on your mantle too.

Have a wonderful day!  xoxo  Jenni
