12 Days of Christmas {Candy Countdown!}

Hi there…Ready for another round of Cricut Design Space Star projects?  This month, we went with a 12 Days of Christmas theme…

I put together a Book Advent every year for my boys, but have always wanted to have an Advent I could slip treats or little notes into.  For this round in the Cricut Challenge, I made a Candy Countdown that could be put together as a 12 Days of Christmas or 25 Days… Candy Countdown to Christmas- OneKriegerChick.com #CDSSTeam10 #CricutExplore Let’s get started…

Supplies needed…

  • Cricut Explore machine
  • white, red, and black cardstock
  • adhesive
  • bakers twine and ribbon
  • clothespins
  • glitter washi tape

I found these cute little candy shapes in Cricut Design Space and knew they would be perfect…You will need to cut out double the mumber in your countdown. If you are making a 12 Days Countdown, cut out 24 white candy shapes. Cut candy pieces Continue cutting the other shapes from the red and black cardstock.  The Cricut Explore will guide you through.  If you want to make a 25 Day Countdown, just cut all 25 numbers at once… numbers for countdown

Once all the pieces are cut, the assembly line looks like this… Steps in making Candy piece I glued the red piece to the white circle, then glued the white circle onto one of the candy shapes.  I then added the number in the middle.  Once these have dried, add a line of glue to the bottom outside edge of the circle and attach the two candies.  This creates a little pocket in the candy piece. Making Candy pocket Tie festive ribbon or bakers twine around each to make them look more like candy.  For the sparkle clothespins, I just added gold glitter washi tape to one side of clothespins.  So cute!
