Last fall I created a dry erase Countdown to Thanksgiving in 8×10 size here.
I decided this year that I would like to use a 5×7 frame that would fit better on my end table.
I set the printer for 5×7 to print this free printable: here
–Black or brown 5×7 frame (I got mine at the Dollar Tree)
–Paper for the countdown printable and for matting (I used scrapbooking paper: a lighter harvest pattern to print on, a solid dark brown for matting the print, and then another pattern for the final mat.)
–Scissors or trimmer
–Dry erase marker for marking the numbers on the glass
And that’s it.
Print the countdown printable, trim the paper for the three sizes, adhere, slip it into the frame and, as you count down the days, enjoy the richness of the blessed season of thanksgiving.
