DIY Birthday Countdown Calendar

I’m so excited to start a new birthday tradition with this calendar. For two weeks leading up to their birthday, the kids will get to move one cupcake to the platter each day until they reach the top (and the sparkly candle!).

I used felt by the yard for the background and the white pedestal and cupcake tops and small felt squares for the rest. I also hand-stitched sequins to each cupcake topper, which took FOREVER but gave it a cool sparkle.

Elmer’s spray adhesive worked well to attach the pedestal to the background and the cupcake tops and bottoms. Because I’m lazy and was sick of cutting and sewing, I just sprayed a little adhesive on the backs of the cupcakes instead of attaching Velcro or hook & eyes to the numbers and the pedestal.
