Make a Felt Christmas Countdown with this easy DIY

Remember when you were a kid
and you made a red and green paper chain 
to countdown to Christmas?
That was one of my favorite parts of celebrating 
the holiday.  I loved the anticipation!

In keeping with that fun tradition
of counting down to Christmas,
I made a very simple and very easy,
vintage inspired Christmas Countdown from felt.
