Gift Series Part 2

  Happy Advent! Thanks for following my series on homemade Christmas gifts. This one is perfect for Advent decorations,  but you can use it throughout the year too.

 All you need is wooden blocks, a hot glue gun, chalkboard paint, and, if you want, something to decorate the blocks. I'm making this for a friend who loves birds, so this festive critter was perfect for her Countdown to Christmas chalkboard.

 First, glue your blocks together. Then spray with chalkboard paint and let it dry. Repeat. Glue your decorations to the top and you are finished. You can easily complete this in an afternoon, if you start early enough to let the paint dry between coats.

 To use throughout the year, write the date on top and month on the bottom.
