I’m so excited about today’s project. Believe it or not I don’t think I have ever made an Advent or Christmas Countdown Calendar before now. I’m not sure why. Maybe they seemed like too much work and I’m a fast-craft kinda crafter. So when I saw Chalk Couture’s Christmas Countdown transfer I knew I’d be making one for my grandchildren.
Just like the Day 2 DIY Grandparent Gift, this countdown calendar was made using two transfers from Chalk Couture; the Christmas Countdown transfer and the Believe transfer. If you haven’t heard about Chalk Couture. In a nutshell, Chalk Couture is a revolutionary new DIY Home Decor company that is taking the DIY Home Decor and crafting world by storm. (read all about it here) You use their chalk pastes and transfers to make beautiful home decor pieces.

How to Make a Chalk Couture Christmas Countdown Calendar
- Remove reusable transfer from backing and place down on Greyson Style White Framed chalkboard. Fuzz the back of the transfer if new to make removal easier. (see back of transfer for instructions)
- Use a squeegee to spread a thin layer of Chalkology Paste over silkscreen areas of transfer. Scrape excess paste back into the jar.
- Remove transfer to reveal design
- Allow paste to dry between layers
