Santa Christmas Countdown

There’s thirty-six days left until Christmas! We’re getting so close to advent season and counting down to Christmas everyday.

Although we have our normal candy one, this year I thought Mila and I should make another.

Say hello to the Santa Christmas Countdown.

With a square wood piece and a little paint, this Santa Christmas Countdown came to life.

The transformation of this piece is adorable. It started with just paint, then numbers, and each day it’ll be filled with cotton balls.

After filling it up, it becomes Christmas decor for years to come!

I love how easy it is and that Mila loves the idea of filling his beard in. Although I’ll just have her use regular glue for the beard, I’ll go back in and add hot glue so it stays on there.

Didn’t it turn out amazing? I love each step of it, but the cotton balls are my favorite. The added texture just makes it so much warmer and jolly. Just like Saint Nick!

You could DIY this Santa Christmas Countdown OR you could just have me make it for you.

I have a Santa Christmas Countdown listing ready to go on my Etsy shop or you could message me too. Either way, I love this piece so much that I wanted to share it all with you!


Let me know in the comments… Do you have an advent calendar every year? If so, what how do you countdown to Christmas?

  1. I absolutely love it! We did one last year with a christmas tree that counted down with tree ornaments. The kids love counting down to Christmas. I absolutely love the beard and the use of cotton balls.
