Loving this super cute Christmas Countdown Chalkboard Charger I made a few years ago and thought I would share it with you. It’s super cute, and a fun project for the kiddos to join in on. Check out how I made thisChristmas Countdown Chalkboard Charger Project in just a few simple steps. It even has some pretty blue glittery flakes! Total project time: 30 minutes.
Before we get started, I wanted to share with you the Michaels store inspiration for my project. I was part of a team of bloggers who worked with Michaels Stores when I created this project a few years back. We had to choose a project and then make it our own. Below was my inspiration.
I loved how cool this was, and how simple of a project this was for anyone to do. It really is an easy beginner project and only takes about 30 minutes to complete the project from start to finish.
DIY Christmas Countdown Chalkboard Charger
To make my project, I decided to change things up just a bit. Here is what you are going to need for this project:
- chalkboard paint
- Mod Podge
- a bag of ornament flakes
The first step in this project is to add your chalkboard paint to the charger. Just tape off the edges of the plate and then carefully apply your chalkboard paint. Allow to dry.
Once the chalkboard paint is dry, it’s time to add the flakes! Grab the Mod Podge and place a good, thick coat onto the edges of the plate.

Then take the bag of ornament flakes and place them all of the edges. (Make sure you are working on a covered surface or you will have ornament flakes everywhere.) I placed my project on a trash bag and when I was done with the leftover flakes I just transferred them back to the original bag for a later use.
Once that is finished, just prime your chalkboard surface with chalk, wipe with a dry towel, and then you are ready to use your DIY Christmas Countdown Chalkboard Charger.
Here is a picture below of the Michaels original project and my project. I really love them both and think they look great!
I love making Christmas Countdowns for the kids, do you make them, too? Do you change them every year? If so, I hope you are inspired by this quick 30 minute Christmas Countdown Chalkboard Charger.
