12 Days of Christmas Bulletin Board Calendar

Count down the days until Christmas with an easy-to-make calendar that features special activities tucked into daily pockets.

What You'll Need

  • 18x14-inch bulletin board
  • Acrylic paints and paintbrush
  • Patterned paper
  • Crafts glue (optional)
  • Double-sided tape
  • Twelve 2-1/4x3-1/2-inch red coin envelopes

How to Make It

1. Paint the frame of the bulletin board; let dry. Adhere patterned paper to the front of the board using crafts glue or double-sided tape.

2. Cut off the flaps of the red coin envelopes to create open tops. Space the envelopes evenly on the bulletin board and attach with double-sided tape.

3. Stamp each number 1 through 12 onto a sticker label. Attach the labels to the metal-rim tags; hot-glue the metal-rim tags onto the envelops.

4. Write or print activities for each of the 12 days on slips of white paper.
