If you’re planning a family vacation in the happiest place on Earth, then this Disneyland Countdown is for you! You’re going to love watching the excitement grow as you peel off each day from the countdown!
Today’s CRAFTWEEK post is sponsored by Cricut and contains affiliate links. Make sure to stop by my Instagram to enter the giveaway!
We went to Disneyland last month with my two sisters’ entire families as well as all the grandparents. That’s 6 parents, 7 children, and 3 grandparents! It’s a miracle we were able to pull it off and still enjoy each other’s company at the end!
I made this Disneyland Countdown for my kids a month before we left. We enjoyed it so much that I also made one for each of the families with kids. Pulling off the daily tab to reveal the hidden message really added to the fun of our upcoming trip!
- Cricut Maker
- Maker Perforation Tool
- Cricut Cardstock Sampler, Princess 12″x24″
- Permanent Vinyl (Black and Red)
- Black Cricut Pen .4 tip
- Adhesives (I used a combination of spray, Creative Station, and Tape Runner)
- “Disneyland Countdown” Design Space File
Use your Cricut Maker to cut the paper and vinyl pieces from the file. Don’t forget to follow instructions to switch out the blade for the Perforation Tool and pen when prompted. This step took me a while because I was making three countdowns at one time!
Once all the pieces are cut, assemble Mickey’s face with the help of your Creative Station. Apply the entire face to the blue background.
Apply adhesive to the top section of the blue background and stick in place on the top of the red background. Use adhesive tape to adhere the outside edges of the blue and red backgrounds together. Try to not get any adhesive onto the pull-away tabs!
Using the Countdown
Now that your Disneyland Countdown is assembled all you have to do is hang it in place! Count out thirty days before you’ll be in Disneyland and begin pulling each tab one day at a time.
Before you know it, you’ll be pulling the very last tab! Hope you have a great time!
