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. Check out how I made this Christmas Countdown Chalkboard Charger Project in just a few simple steps. It even has some pretty blue glitter flakes! Total project time: 30 minutes.
Christmas Countdown Chalkboard Charger
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 plan 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 is an easy beginner project and only takes about 30 minutes to complete the project from start to finish.
How to Make a Christmas Countdown Chalkboard Charger
To do 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 drying.
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 put my project on a trash bag, and when I was done with the leftover flakes, I just transferred them back to the original container for later use.
Once that is finished, 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 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.
