Christmas Candy Countdown

I made these Christmas Candy Countdowns for this weekend's vendor fair -- and I was so happy to find the "gluten free" candy ball packets at Big Lots! A few years ago I saw this idea, and adapted the size and the verse for this project. I made a bunch using small candy canes too, and called it "Candy Cane Countdown." I used the Jingle candy cane striped papers for those.

Jingle papers are so cheerful with the non-traditional Christmas colors in Juniper and Tulip. Oh, I do love all the greens and reds too ... and I'm using every single piece and not wasting a scrap. Frugal, just like momma taught me to be.

These 10 candy packets will help young children count down the last, very slow 10 days until Christmas Day.

Glad you stopped by -- and I appreciate your comments too!
