How to Make a Cookie Advent Calendar

Who needs another advent calender to hang on the wall?

Well... everyone. They are sort of really fun, so why not a way to count down to Christmas in a new way?


The Christmas Cookie Countdown Calender! 

  • Cookie Jar (bought at Hobby Lobby for $2.25 during 50% off week)
  • Chalkboard vinyl 
  • Vinyl decal
  • Cloth

1. Rub the glass with a cloth so the vinyl will adhere (for some reason I've noticed vinyl doesn't stick to glass very well.  The glass retains moisture, so rubbing it with cloth beforehand helps a lot!)

2. Apply the vinyl to the desired spot on your cookie jar (Visit my store or e-mail me if you want to order your own vinyl)

3. Add chalkboard vinyl to the cookie jar

4. Add cookies and enjoy!

Mmmmmm.... Tasty :)


  1. CUTE way to count to christmas. MMM...cookies :)

  3. Love this cookie jar...(too bad my cookies are all without gluten.)
