I used the "Santa in Airplane" Silhouette Cut File to create this fun countdown calendar!
Of course, I used the "Here Comes Santa Claus" papers and embellishments to dress up this cute Santa & Plane!
Instead of cutting out the banner flying behind the plane, I opted to cut out 25 little banner flags, and the numbers 1 - 25. I embellished each little flag, then clipped them onto a long piece of chunky twine with miscellaneous coordinating clips.
I love the idea of Santa flying around, watching the kids to make sure they are being NICE (not naughty) each day until Christmas arrives. Every night, we can unclip one of the numbers until the big day finally arrives! It would also be fun to make this into a type of advent calendar by writing an activity on the back of each number. I may have to add some fun activity ideas to my countdown before December arrives.
In the meantime, I'm counting down the days until I can hang this cute Santa up on the wall to stay!
Thanks so much, Doodlebug, for the opportunity to visit again, and share my "Here Comes Santa Claus" Silhouette project with you and your awesome blog readers!
