If you want to build up excitement around the house for Christmas, these free Christmas countdown printables will help you do just that! Print, frame, and use a dry erase marker to update the number of days until Christmas. This is simple, but fun way to get everyone excited. If you use a frame you already have at home, it’s totally free!
There is no question that we all spend the time from Thanksgiving to Christmas counting down. This printable helps keep us all straight for how many more days there are left. For parents, that might mean how many more days there are to shop, wrap and survive. For kids, that is how many more days they have until Santa arrives to bring that special gift.
Either way, having a reusable countdown printable helps us all keep the days straight. Place this cute decoration in your kitchen or on an end table in the family room as a constant reminder.
🎄 Why This Works
Cheap – I tend to say this a lot with our free printables but it’s true. I love to have freebies for holiday decorating. Simply pay for the ink in your printer cartridge, right?
Creative – Place the printable in a picture frame and use the dry erase marker on the glass to record the number of days left until the 25th!
Versatile – With freebies like this, you can change out your holiday decor with no guilt. We’ve all bought things at the holidays and later thought “I don’t want to go this route” or “What was I thinking?” and had regrets. There are no regrets with freebie printables.
🌲 How This Differs From An Advent Calendar
This is a reusable countdown to put behind a frame to use a dry erase marker to mark the days each day. You only need a frame to put it into.
An Advent calendar is where you count down the days from December 1 to December 25. Usually there is a piece of chocolate to eat each day or the old fashioned ones have sweet pictures inside the window openings
There are two designs available – a modern gold design and one that isn’t super Christmasy, but that’s why I like it! Download both or just one.
Both prints are 8×10″ and are sized to fit an 8×10″ frame.

Print on 8.5×11” photo paper or card stock at 100% size (to preserve image quality, don’t resize if you can help it). You can also print on 8×10″ photo paper to avoid trimming if your printer can print borderless, but it’s usually harder to find since it’s a less common size.
Frame and use a dry erase marker to write the days until Christmas on the glass! Repeat every morning until Christmas is here!
