Countdown To New Year's

Do you still have your Christmas decor up or are you a take it down on the 26th kind of girl?  I

I normally leave mine up until New Year's Day.  And this year is no exception, minus the tree.  It was in the way and although I love the lights, I was ready for it to go so away it went for another year.  The rest of the decor is still intact.

But, I decided I need something fresh in the Christmas decor mix--something to celebrate the anticipation of the New Year.

A countdown sign was just the ticket.

I started with a 1x10 (?) that I painted blue.  I was going to paint all of the numbers, but then decided to junk it up a bit with old house numbers and bits and bobbles made into numbers.

I still painted a few of them to help tie in the bottle of bubbly in the bottom corner.

I thought the clock face was perfect for the New Year's theme.  I used E6000 to secure the junk.

It won't stay up for too long, but is a fun addition to my holiday decorations.
