Birthday Countdown Vinyl Sign by Samantha

Hello! Samantha with you today. We make a big deal of birthdays in our family, so I thought it would be fun to make a birthday countdown sign to celebrate the anticipation of an upcoming birthday. 

I wanted to make the sign durable so I could use it for both of my kids and use it year after year. However, that also means I need to be able to change out the photo and count down the days. 

To make the sign durable, I used plywood and painted it in a bright aqua blue. To make the photo easily changeable, I added a small clothespin to the board to hold the photo. I tackled the need to change the countdown number by cutting my star from SRM's chalkboard vinyl. Just write it on and wipe it off! 

I cut "days until my birthday!" from teal vinyl with my Silhouette Cameo. Then I overlayed "birthday!" with gold holographic vinly to really make it pop. To pull everything together, I added some gold holographic vinyl to the clothespin holding the photo. 

This birthday countdown sign is a piece of birthday decor that I'll be able to use for many years to come. My kids love that they can countdown the days, and I love that I can add my favorite photo of the birthday boy! How soon do your kids start counting down the days until their birthday? 

All vinyl used can be found HERE.
