I love these oval pieces of wood from the dollar tree. They just scream "make me cute" every time I walk by.
Dollar tree also had this fun trim and I had extra stickers, and scrap paper. I wanted to try this technique for the letters... you paint a base coat of the color you want your words to be, put stickers for your title, then paint over them, peel them off, and presto... I have seen girls do this with their subway art projects.
I hot glued magnets to the back of the board. Wrapped the jumbo chalk with paper and put a magnet on that, too. This count down will make it's home on our fridge.
