My #CanYouTopThis project is somewhat minimalistic … however, if you made this project, you could decorate it as elaborately as you wish. I prefer the simpleness of the white space and an uncluttered look.
WHAT YOU NEED for a CHRISTMAS COMMAND CENTER:
1 Elmer’s tri-fold display board (I got mine at Walmart for about $4)
scrap book paper and/or construction paper
any crafty items you prefer – stickers, sticky (post-it) notes, tacks, glue, etc
(I had everything but the display board at home already.)
I made my own December 2010 calendar, which is the centerpiece of my board. I just glued the scrapbook paper right on to the board. You could always print off a standard calendar page from your computer.
On the right side, I put up sheets for 2 lists: My Menu and My Gift List. Scrapbook paper is my base; and I was able to use THUMBTACKS to later tack on my lists (they stuck very well into the display board!):
Under my calendar, I added my TO DO LIST and GROCERY LIST. The grocery list is a sticky-note pad so I can pull off my list and take it with me when I’m ready to go shopping.
On the left side, I made a fun Christmas Light Countdown Section:
I cut my bulbs out of construction paper.
You can either add a bulb a day from 1 to 25, tracking the date, OR from 25 to 1, counting down to ONE DAY TIL CHRISTMAS. I taped my bulbs on, but you could also easily use stick glue.
